Married bliss or hit and miss! An hysterical warts and all look at relationships!
Four vastly different couples attend a weekend of relationship therapy, where they reveal their true personalities, resulting in clashes, the revelation of secrets and some home truths, giving the audience a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the character’s private worlds. Based on real-life events, Phillip A Mayer’s "Couples!" is funny, insightful and poignant, serving as a warning not to enter into a partnership lightly! Will the couples survive counseling, or will the cracks that develop be too deep?
Garnering over 40 nominations, the show won a raft of awards touring festivals during 2014, including Best Comedy, Best Ensemble and Show with the Most Audience Appeal and in 2015 it had a sell-out season at La Mama. 2016 sees the show make its Melbourne Comedy Festival debut.
