The Parking Lot

By Adam Szymkowicz
Directed by Jayne L. Victor

A married couple, but will they stay that way much longer?  Some couples have the benefit of negotiating the ups and downs of marriage in private, and/or in therapy. But the pandemic changed all of that so J and Terry have decided to use a parking lot as the setting to answer a very critical question… should they get a divorce?

Imagine a married couple, played by a married couple, directed by a married couple in the parking lot behind a restaurant called The Parking Lot!  Perfect!
