What happens when we break the rules around love and sex? Tony & Christine are a 30-something Portland couple who meet Sarah and Brian in a coffeeshop one day. They begin a friendship that quickly develops into romance on all sides. As both couples are drawn deeper into this strange new arrangement, it seems they’ve found a way to rewrite the rules of modern relationships – until it’s revealed that one couple is not what they seem, and everyone must decide what they’ll do next. Kaleidoscope is by Naga Nataka, co-founder of the Missoula-based theatre group The Open Field Artists.
