THE COTTAGE is a rollicking farce in the style of Noel Coward. Set in the English countryside in 1923, this tale of sex, betrayal and, oh yes, love, unfolds when a beautiful British bird decides to expose her love affair to her husband and her lover’s wife. The true meanings of fate, identity and marriage are called into question as a surprising, hilarious web of secrets unravels in this delightful—and potentially murderous—romantic comedy.
The production stars Daniel Bielinski* (Macbeth, Classic Stage Company), Maria Couch* (On the Levee, Lincoln Center), Michelle Federer*, Bailey Frankenberg, Jason Loughlin* (1st Nat’l Tour: War Horse), and Justin Packard*.
