Amphibian Productions wants to save you from another sad Monday night watching Two and a Half Men. Tonight (Dec 5) at 7pm, the ‘Phibs will present a staged reading of Christopher Hampton’s 1976 play Treats at The Modern. Tix are $5-$15.
Hampton’s script concerns a woman who thinks she has chosen the better romantic partner from two men in her life, but her rejected and hostile ex-boyfriend abruptly returns with a complicated strategy to lure her back. Treats explores the messy compromises of modern relationships, and asks a perenially compelling question: Why are strong, smart, professional women so often attracted to total jerks?
