Story: Fifty years into her marriage to Bill, Nancy wants a divorce. While her husband seems unfazed by the decision, her two adult sons are shaken to the core, forced to reexamine everything they thought they knew about their parents’ outwardly happy lives. As the family grapples with their new reality, each must reckon with their own imperfect past and how their love for each other might express itself in new and unlikely forms.

Adult Material: Occasional outbursts of language. Frank discussions of sex.

“…GRAND HORIZONS is a sweet, sweet delight…[It’s] extremely funny, while also asking a few tart questions about comedy itself.” —New York Magazine.

“…playwright Bess Wohl nails the [family] genre beautifully with GRAND HORIZONS, which…provides two hours of solid laughs (including some pretty high peaks of riotous guffaws) while quizzically pondering issues of love and marriage.” —BroadwayWorld.
