Everything is fine! No, seriously, it is – it’s super duper extra never been better everything’s – wait, do you think Eli’s gonna kiss her tonight at midnight? Do you think he loves her back? Do you think he – no, no, no one’s got a drinking problem, and the panic attacks are just, no, they’re – it’s fine, everything’s fine!! Right? Right! This comedic exploration delves into the complex territory of love, loss, and the resilience to choose life in the face of incalculable loss.
In THE GREAT DIVIDE, our protagonist’s inner conflict unravels with wit and charm, while addressing the profound themes of love, loss, and the path to healing. As the play unravels, the audience will be taken on a heartfelt and hilarious ride, celebrating the triumph of the human spirit in the face of adversity. The story emphasizes the importance of self-discovery and the ability to overcome personal challenges, ultimately teaching us that even in the darkest moments, one can find hope and light.
