Marriage Play follows Jack and Gillian, a couple in their fifties, as they dissect their thirty years of marriage through reminiscing about their experiences of affection, passion, betrayal, and neglect. After Jack’s declaration that he is leaving Gillian, the couple fights both verbally and physically. Jack and Gillian, both witty and educated, go through a self-examination beyond just the downfall of their marriage, falling into an existential crisis. Marriage Play serves as a critical look at the definition of marriage and the overall purpose of our lives.
