You know the theme of Pink Floyd's The Wall
: the barrier that exists between artist and audience, between the lonely individual and the rest of humanity. A. R. Gurney revisited that concept with his play The Fourth Wall
. The plot of Gurney's comedy centers on a married couple, Peggy and Roger, after Peggy decides to redecorate their living room in the manner of a stage set, with everything facing one bare wall — the titular fourth wall — which in reality is the audience. Discover the ramifications of this nutty feng shui when the Kirkwood Theatre Guild performs The Fourth Wall
