There, beginning at 8 p.m., household happenings and domestic strife will force a cast consisting of Ruth Ho Shing, Barbara McCalla, Dennis Titus and Maylynne Walton-Lowe to reveal the intricacies of the double-deals couples agree when they decide to share everything in life.

The cast have been racking up rave reviews in Toronto, Canada, London, England and throughout the Caribbean particularly in Jamaica where divorce is no laughing matter.
