Show Description

The Cottage is a side-splitting farce by Sandy Rustin inspired by the works of Noel Coward. Set in the English countryside in 1923, this tale of sex, betrayal and love unfolds when Sylvia decides to expose her affair to both her husband and to her lover’s wife. The true meaning of fate, identity and marriage are called into question as a surprising and hilarious web of secrets unravels in this ridiculous – potentially murderous – romantic comedy. Directed by Tony Award winner Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) making his Broadway directorial debut, The Cottage will star Emmy Award winner Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), Tony Award nominee Laura Bell Bundy (Legally Blonde) and Tony Award nominee Lilli Cooper (Tootsie).
