A Love Affair

by Jerry Mayer

August 17th - October 1st

This award winning romantic comedy is brimming with hilarious as well as moving moments captured from a 38 year marriage. As Jimmy and Alice Diamond clear out the attic of their Malibu home because a turn of finances is forcing them to move into a cramped condo, they find themselves reliving the flawed masterpiece that is their marriage. A subtitle, with a smile, might be, “Till Debt do us Part.” Two pairs of actors play the Diamonds, (early and now, in their marriage) one young and one mature. Throughout, they observe and comment on each other. In one delightful scene, the four confront each other to negotiate the transition into middle age. The fifth cast member plays six different women who influence the Diamond marriage, offering a tour de force for an actress. “A Love Affair” is both a timeless and a timely play, because its story is about financial reverses and how they can either weaken or reinforce relationships, depending on how the difficult times are handled. It’s a moving, identifiable story that rings true, while offering a multiplicity of laughs.
