Thirty-something couple Rob and Chris have the “perfect” childless marriage – complete with passion, excitement and pleasure. Six years ago however, Rob and Chris were Bobby and Tina. Bobby and Tina started dating in high school. They are each other’s first date, first kiss, first love. But in their Grade 12 year, Tina got pregnant and their world changed. Funny and remarkably touching, this innovative new play explores the struggles, battles, love and laughter that long-term relationships are built on.
