Bernard Slade Price: $9.99

Amy and Michael Ruskin are celebrating their fifteenth wedding anniversary and their upcoming divorce. Michael is a reformed television writer turned playwright. Amy is competitive but inwardly insecure

The play is structured as a series of flashbacks. After the opening scene, the play goes back in time ten years and recreates the various special occasions which make up marriages: anniversaries, weddings, funerals, play openings and other catastrophes

And, after all is said and done, the couple ends as they began on their fifteenth anniversary, dancing to a recording of "Love Is Here to Stay"
