Prelude to a Kiss

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

You never know where one little kiss will take you…

A whirlwind courtship. A storybook wedding. A kiss for the bride. And suddenly everything changes. When Peter and Rita's brand-new marriage is strained by a magical twist of fate, true love will never mean quite the same thing again. 

This charming, funny, and poignant adult fairy tale challenges our assumptions of beauty and ageing, the limits of love, and how we navigate a life constructed by choices made by or for us.
