HOOK AND LADDER

TM Premiere Sm.jpg

'In a world fractured by party lines, rigid beliefs, and divided communities, how can we communicate and, more importantly, understand one another?'

Understood's surreal story follows a husband and wife who find themselves lost in their young marriage. The inexplicable disappearance of their beloved dog drives them from their relationship and into chance encounters with strangers who hold vastly different worldviews. Through sharp dialogue and fast-paced transitions, the play explores these uneasy relationships using only two performers, emphasizing the play’s message that despite the intense disagreements we may have, human beings are ultimately more similar than they are different.
