SA Premiere - Lips Together, Teeth Apart, by Terrence McNally One beach house; two married couples … it’s going to be a long, long weekend!
John’s jumpy, Chloe’s hyper, Sam’s sulking and Sally’s upset - but for once they have time to think about life’s big questions.
Through monologues unheard by others, the characters reveal a desperate sense of individual isolation. The only people these four characters find more alien are the unseen men partying in the houses on either side of them.
As they divert themselves from their own mortality with food, cocktails, the crossword puzzle, fireworks, charades and biting jabs at each other and the boys next door, the two couples find little to celebrate. But if they can find the answers to their questions they might be able to sleep at night without grinding their teeth.
Dave Simms says‘The two couples are funny, yet not easy to like; we see them argue, put on brave faces and we also get the chance to hear them thinking. I hope that by laughing at Chloe and watching all the characters changing attitudes to topics such as marriage and gay men, we will be reminded that it's important to care for friends, be loyal to family and respect people different to ourselves.’
