The End of Beauty

(2M, 1F)
Michael and Margaret seem happily married and comfortable in their lives as tenured professors of the visual arts at a small quaint college in Wichita, Kansas.  But when Margaret’s former student, a well-renowned painter, returns to Wichita, the darker side of their relationship rears its head.  A play that spans twenty-five years, The End of Beauty examines the beauty of the things we love and how those things can change in a single night.

Developed at the Playwrights Center as a part of a McKnight Advancement Grant (2013) and at the Cape Cod Theatre Project (2014).  Finalist for the O’Neill Playwrights Conference (2013).
