WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SKY – DRAMA ABOUT SUSPECTED INFIDELITY

In this drama about suspected infidelity, Jonathan is to some extent obliged to have Brett his publisher over for a drink and his wife Madeline is quite irritated at having the publisher in their home. The evening gets off to a pleasant enough start when the drinks flow and the trio engages in a light conversation about the general goings-on of life.

Brett soon divulges his real reasons for wanting to see Jonathan at his home and with the truth that his job may slightly be in the balance, finally out in the open, things go from uncomfortable, to cringe worthy to completely awry in a hot minute. The suspicious air surrounding Madeline and Brett’s relationship to one another grows even thicker with apprehension as Jonathan’s better judgement is severely impaired and lines between professional and intimate are completely blurred. Jonathan’s fears for the worst are put to the test as he questions his marriage and his sanity in two acts.

In more ways than one, marriage is a certain death.
