Katha and Ryu, a young married couple in present-day New York, realize their lives rarely make them happy. Would they have been more content in the 1950s? A chance meeting gives them the opportunity to find out—to join a community dedicated to recreating a society with different, simpler values. Jordan Harrison uses this ingenious premise to explore revealing contrasts between the 21st-century world of plastic surgery, smartphones, and sushi, and the 1950s—when only the husbands went to work and the wives sewed their own dresses. Harrison’s clever play offers delightful entertainment but also compels us to reflect on the choices we all must make about how to live and whom to love.
