This American Wife

Sponsored by: Yale Cabaret

On screens across the world, women call themselves “real” while they scream, cry, and scam their way to the top. Teresa flips tables, Vicki fakes cancer, and Luann is getting married! Meanwhile, spiraling in shame in their bedrooms, Michael and Patrick clandestinely binge on the gaudy lives and savvy strategies of these expert women. Magically, one day they meet and embark on a joint journey to articulate their mutual humiliation. A multi-media theatre and dance work created and performed by Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, THIS AMERICAN WIFE is an investigation into Michael and Patrick’s experiences of obsession, queerness, performance, and the deep desire to run with a fabulous circle of people.
