Hilberry Theatre

February 22 - April 6, 2013

Marriage is a poetic and hilarious, fractured fairy tale about the business of marriage. A town matchmaker and a newly betrothed busybody match wits in an intense race to marry off a gun-shy suitor. One bride, four men, two matchmakers and one family are seduced into the calamity that ensues and it is anybody’s guess whether the bride will make it to the altar.
