'Til Beth Do Us Part

Show Dates


In this side-splitting comic romp about marriage, career-driven Suzannah  Hayden needs a lot more help on the home front than she’s getting from  her husband, Gibby. Lately, nurturing his marriage of twenty-seven years  hasn’t been the highest priority for Gibby, but pretty soon he’ll wish  it had been. Enter Beth Bailey, Suzannah’s newly-hired assistant, a  gregarious, highly-motivated daughter of the South. To Suzannah’s  delight, Beth explodes into the Hayden household and whips it into an  organized, well-run machine. This couldn’t have happened at a better  time for Suzannah, since her boss, Celia Carmichael, the C.E.O. of  Carmichael’s Chocolates, is flying in soon for an important  make-or-break business dinner. Gibby grows increasingly wary as Beth  insinuates herself into more and more aspects of their lives. In no  time, she exceeds her duties as a household assistant and interjects  herself into Suzannah’s career. As Suzannah’s dependence on Beth grows  and Gibby’s dislike of the woman deepens, Suzannah gives Beth carte  blanche to change anything in the household that “will make it run more  efficiently.” And the change Beth makes is convincing Suzannah that  Gibby must go! When he realizes it’s Suzannah’s career Beth is really  after, a newly-determined Gibby sets out to save his marriage aided by  Suzannah’s best friend, Margo, a wisecracking and self-deprecating  divorcee and her ex-husband, Hank, who is in the midst of his own  mid-life crisis. Their effort to stop Beth at any cost sets up the  wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry just as  Suzannah’s boss arrives for that all-important dinner. Whether you’re  married, single, rethinking your divorce or currently being controlled  by someone up to no good, you’re sure to enjoy this family-friendly,  laugh-out-loud Jones/Hope/Wooten comedy!
