Can you say -- “I don’t?” Tony award-winner Jason Alexander brings the hilarious dark comedy The War of the Roses, to the Ogunquit Playhouse stage for its Northeast premiere. This new play follows Oliver and Barbara Rose, a wealthy couple seemingly enjoying marital bliss, until the moment Barbara asks for a divorce. A diabolically funny and bitter battle ensues that sets new standards for how far a couple will go to get even. Battle lines are drawn, territory is staked out, and hostilities fly (along with some glassware and other assorted items!) as the Roses engage in a duel that wildly escalates and threatens to burn their relationship, their precious home, and their sanity to the ground. This ferociously funny story of domestic warfare examines the razor-thin line between love and hate, and features the greatest stage role for a chandelier since The Phantom of the Opera. This cautionary tale is based on the novel The War of the Roses by Warren Adler, is reimagined and adapted for the stage by multi-Emmy Award-winning author Peter Tolan, and directed by Jason Alexander.
