About How to Transcend a Happy Marriage

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.

From Sarah Ruhl, the adventurous author of “Eurydice” and “The Vibrator Play,” “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?

Directed by Adam L. Sussman

With: Fenner, Hilary Hesse, Celeste Kamiya, Karen Offereins, Malcolm Rodgers, Nick Trengrove, Louel Senores, and Matt Weimer.
