The story of occupied Amsterdam and a family and acquaintances hidden in the sealed-off upper rooms of an office building.

by Mo Gaffney, Jordan Harrison, Moishe Kaufman, Neil LaBute,
Wendy MacLeod, Josh Rivera, Paul Rudnick, and Doug Wright


 
Two little words, and suddenly your whole world changes. An A-list lineup of writers offers unique takes on the moments before, during and after "I do." Witty, warm and occasionally wacky, these plays are vows to the blessings of equality, the universal challenges of relationships and the often hilarious power of love.
 
"CEREMONY puts a human face on a hot-button issue and delivers laughter and tears rather than propaganda." —BackStage. "All you have to do is listen, shed an occasional tear and laugh a lot. There is something for everybody…STANDING ON CEREMONY holds a magnifying glass to the highs and lows, joys and fears, courage and silliness, of people bucking trends and making history. It's a fine evening, heartily recommended." —NY Observer.

Four year-old Lucy has a very active imagination. Mr. Marmalade, her imaginary friend, is creepy but helps Lucy to make sense of the strange things she hears the adults in her dysfunctional family talking about.  Lucy eventually sheds her imaginary friend and makes friends with the neighbor boy. MR. MARMALADE is a savage black comedy about what it takes to grow up in these difficult times.
