The Anatomy of Love is about Danny and Laura, a typical modern couple. She is a dedicated, hard-working lawyer while he, an underemployed actor, is a stay at home dad. Their marriage has been shifted to auto pilot as both of them strive for the American dream. But all is brought to a dead, frightening stop when their seven-year old daughter’s teacher suggests that the child is most likely transgender. What follows is a fierce and sometimes hostile battle with Danny and Ms. Spencer advocating acceptance and pre-emptive reassignment and Laura adamantly refusing either action. This highly relevant issue of our time is the battleground for this emotional and heartbreaking story of fierce love and dreaded loss.

The Anatomy of Love had previous industry staged readings in New York City with a cast that included Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Oz, 30 Rock) and was directed by Tony Award-nominated director Sheryl Kaller ( Mother and Sons, Next Fall ). The Anatomy of Love also had readings at MCC Theater in New York City. As a part of our On The Radar (OTR) New Works Series, Chance Theater will stage the first workshop production of The Anatomy of Love.
