Written when Coward was only 18 years old, this drama centers on the struggles of a newlywed couple. The production was originally set to tryout in 1923 before the sudden death of the lead actress, Meggie Albanesi. Coward published the play in 1924, dedicated to the memory of Albanesi.

Emily Bosco, Jason Eddy, and Kate Hampton serve as understudies.

In addition to director Alexander Lass, the creative team includes scenic designer Vicki R. Davis, costume designer Hunter Kaczorowski, lighting designer Christian DeAngelis, sound designer Bill Toles, dialect coach Amy Stoller, and casting director Stephanie Klapper.
