Fifty Words

Courtesy of STLAS
It's been a long time since Jan and her husband, Adam, have had the place to themselves. Between their son, their jobs and the distractions of everyday life, the couple haven't spent an evening at home together — just the two of them — in years. What will they do to pass the time? Adam has an idea, but Jan isn't on board. This is one of many rifts they must cross in Michael Weller's Fifty Words. Can a long-married couple talk about anything other than their annoyances and disappointments with their respective partner, or has the marriage soured so thoroughly? St. Louis Actors' Studio opens its thirteenth season with the drama Fifty Words. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (September 20 to October 6) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35.
