"Until Death Do Us Part" is an evening of short one-act plays consisting of three classic domestc farces on love and marriage. The first Devplay, Ladies' Man by Georges Feydeau, looks at two women who both are about to be engaged and the advice the older lady offers to the younger - and how the tables are turned in the end! Next is Anton Chekov's well-known play The Marrige Proposal about a young man proposing marriage to his neighbor's daughter and the mistaken results that occur from his nervous attempts at getting to it. Finally we have Georges Courteline's These Cornfields, a raucous farce about a borgeois married couple and a gentleman who figures to spend the winter in their Manhattan abode, with unexpected results.

The plays were all written between 1880 and 1900 and will be presented as period pieces in an intimate setting in this fast-paced evening of comedy.
