The Cottage is set in the bucolic English countryside in 1923, and is described as “a rollicking tale of sex, betrayal and love which explodes when Sylvia decides to be wildly indiscreet about her indiscretions. The true meaning of fate, identity and marriage are called into question as an unpredictable and hilarious web of secrets begins to unravel.”
The Cottage is produced by Broadway & Beyond Theatricals (Victoria Lang, Ryan Bogner, Tracey McFarland), Martian Entertainment (Carl White, Gregory Rae), and Cornice Productions (Eric Cornell, Jack Sennott). Broadway & Beyond Theatricals will Executive Produce and Martian Entertainment serves as General Manager.
