Married for 25 years, Claire and Philip's comfortable union shudders when Claire's younger co-worker Richard ignites a flirtation of questionable intent. Part of Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
Terry Roueche's Discretion provides an intimate view inside a once-contented 25-year marriage as it is shaken by the wife's stirring flirtation with a younger coworker.
After graduating from Western Carolina University, Roueche began working as a journalist before pursuing his true passion of playwriting. When community theaters wouldn't buy works from an unknown, he started his own theater company, Main Street Theater in Rock Hill. The company's first production, Take My Wife, Please, played country club dinner theaters and was even staged Off-Off Broadway. When not writing, Roueche can be found teaching the craft at Winthrop University.
Discretion's voyeuristic view inside the characters' marriage reminds the audience of how fragile relationships are, and it also begs the question, "Can passion and fidelity co-exist in a committed relationship?"
