Synopsis: "At a dinner party in the wilds of New Jersey, two married couples discuss a younger acquaintance - a polyamorous woman who also hunts her own meat. Fascinated, they invite this mysterious woman and her two live-in boyfriends to a New Year's Eve party, which alters the course of their lives. How to Transcend a Happy Marriage asks: how much love can a twosome contain? What are the limits of friendship, and what happens when parents who have forgotten their own wildness have a wild rumpus all their own?"
The creative team behind How to Transcend a Happy Marriage features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design by Matt Hubbs, and original music by Todd Almond.
The production will mark the LCT debuts for Lena Hall, David McElwee, Omar Metwally, Austin Smith and Marisa Tomei.
