A play that explores love (in its various forms), by combining the Greek myths of Pyramus & Thisbe, Orpheus & Eurydice, and Psyche & Cupid.

Natty and David have been married for five years. After years struggling to establish David as a Magician, their careers are finally taking off but their communication has become strained to the point where Natty is convinced David is cheating on her. Rather than confront him, she decides to hire a private investigator to follow him to find out if he is having an affair, with who, and why. But when magic is involved, nothing is as straightforward as it may appear and Natty may not be prepared for the truth about her husband, their relationship, and herself.
