With 'The Art of Wedlock', Matthew dusts off a collection of rarely, if ever, seen one act plays. Ranging from the absurd to the philosophical, together they tell a heartfelt, funny and poignant tale of the extraordinary institution that is marriage.

This is Speckintime's FIRST theatrical production, and as such, we are seeking some financial support to help pay for the lighting & sound design, set & costume, and also the printing costs associated with this production. A huge thank you in advance for your kind support.
