    About the play: When Charles and Martha got married, she said he had the nicest feet she’d ever seen. Now? She calls them ugly. Specifically, fat and hairy with a touch of toe fungus. Now? She says she’s leaving him, her former Super Man, for a veritable god she calls Zeus. She’s Athena, of course. But Charles gets the hint, adjusts his x-ray vision, and negotiates his way back into her heart.

    It’s a wonderful play about shaking up the daily routines of a long-term relationship.
