The Studio@620 presents the first fully staged production of “Gladiola” by Colleen Johnson, Directed by Christopher Rutherford.
“Gladiola” explores the concept of later life divorce (sometimes called Silver Divorce) and the effect it has on older couples and their loved ones. The piece examines the role of marriage in society — whether marriage is necessary to have a fully integrated life and whether an unhappy marriage is preferable to none at all. The main character must decide what is more valuable to him, a supportive and caring friendship or a damaged romantic relationship. His grown children face their own struggles as a result of the sudden instability of their parents’ 30-year marriage.
