About The Open Couple
Antonia has coped for years with her husband, who has been trying to get her to agree to his idea of an open marriage. A mad-cap masquerade, a roller-coaster circus ringÂ or rather, just a normal relationship between a man and a woman. The play opens with Antonia as a suicidal emotional wreck and through a series of funny, poignant vignettes, concludes with a complete role reversal. Known for his witty political satires, what draws one to Dario Fos The Open Couple is the interplay of dualities in the politics of relationships.
