About the show

Emery Entertainment presents a touring solo show; a theatrical fusion between theatre and stand-up, based on the best selling book by John Gray. More…

Performer Peter Story stars in a one man play about how couples can bridge the interplanetary gulf between the sexes. The play's narrator resisted the Mars/Venus theory for years, but after he meets John Gray, he is a convert. This 90-minute show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Presented via different vignettes, topics cover everything from dating to marriage to the bedroom.
