The Fantasy Bond: Charles and Alice are a “Couple of old marrieds” on their second honeymoon. After thirty years of marriage it’s hard to imagine anything could come between them. But Charles is holding on to a difficult secret; one that he must tell Alice today. This trip was meant to spark some romance back into their marriage, but it may just spark something else. The Fantasy Bond by Jules Tasca gives us a glimpse into that fateful conversation. Will their bond bring them through, or has their marriage been a momentous fantasy?

Here nor There: How much needs to be revealed in order to be considered “authentic”? This is a solo trip down memory lane, but whose memories exactly?

Head and Heart: In the spring of 1786, while serving as the US minister to France, Thomas Jefferson met—and probably fell in love with—a young, married Englishwoman named Maria Cosway. After Cosway left Paris in October, Jefferson composed a remarkable letter to her in which his Head argued with his Heart.

As a theatrical experiment, Charlie performs this letter. His personal one person show, An Aid to Pain, about his confused relationships with Romantic Love, Gender and Nostalgia (to say nothing of his passion for the novels of Georgette Heyer), is in progress. Perhaps this letter is the box that show comes in.

Barracuda: Barry isn’t stupid. He knows something is going on with Grace, and when she doesn’t tell him a confrontation ensues. When their exchange takes a turn, Barry moves to confront the man she may (or may not) have been involved with.
