Gretchen and Steve have been married for a long time. Living in San Francisco, recently separated, with two children and demanding jobs, they’ve started marriage counseling. Unfolding over the course of ten months and taking place entirely in the counselor’s office, John Jay Osborn’s riveting drama of marital therapy is the story of a fractured couple in a moment of crisis, and of the person who tries to get them to see each other again. A searing look at the obstacles we put in our own way, as well as the forces that drive us apart and those that bring us together, Listen to the Marriage is a poignant exploration of marriage ― heartbreaking and tender.
