Three Views of the Same Object
Winner of the 11/12 Woodward/Newman Drama Award
Three Views of the Same Object touchingly tells the story of an elderly couple with a suicide pact... their agreement to end it all "before they lose control of their lives." How do you know when the right moment presents itself? What if one is ready to go and the other isn't. Multiple actors portray the same husband and wife as we see three simultaneous views of how this pact will play out.
Three Views of the Same Object began with a real incident when Murray stopped to help an elderly woman who had fallen beside her curbside mailbox. As he walked her to her house, the front door opened and her husband appeared in a wheelchair, trapped by the threshold. She called out, "Honey, I fell down. And can you believe it, I'm not even drunk." Three Views is about aging in America, enduring love, and the choices we make that determine our fate.
