THE PARKING LOT
By Adam Szymkowicz
A River's Edge Theatre Company and Irvington Theater
Co-production. And New York premier!
Some married couples go to therapy to work through their problems, but Terry and J take a very different approach. This brave couple will decide their fate in confines of a parking lot. Will they overcome their obstacles and accept that they are worthy of each other’s love? Or are they destined for divorce? The Parking Lot, a new play written for a socially distanced audience, explores what it means to love and be loved even when opposing forces are at play.
