About the Show

A raucous multimedia theatre work, this new piece tracks two men's obsessions with intimacy, queerness, and the deep desire to see and be seen.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Raunchy, Quirky

See it if you like experimental, multi-media, shows without much of a plot, but with a strong message. Incredibly high quality for a blackbox show.

Don't see it if you want a "straight"-forward play or don't want to see young people wrestle with their own issues on stage. It's a bit navel gaze-y.

"Though overall an excruciating experience, thanks to its accomplished multimedia presentation 'This American Wife' is bearable and its 80-minutes pass briskly...It’s intended to be hilarious but isn’t as its performers simply aren’t funny and are devoid of charm...Breslin and Foley’s shtick might have made for some amusing YouTube videos but as a full-length stage piece 'This American Wife' is so encrusted with smarmy pretentiousness as to render it as masturbatory tedium."

“Incredibly funny and uncomfortable...I laughed, I cringed, and admired the creativity of Foley and Breslin. This show is everything you would not expect from a play based on ‘The Real Housewives’ because it is way more thoughtful. It is not trying to be gimmicky as much as genuinely funny and open to analysis. Yet, if you have never watched ‘The Real Housewives’ or do not know too much about the series ‘This American Wife’ might fall flat to you."
