SUMMARY:"Annie and Peter have it all: successful careers, a lovely home and a good marriage, until failed attempts to start a family begin to turn their lives inside out. The choice to expand beyond the American border and adopt a child from Africa reveals to the couple new insight into their marriage, their identities, and their community. Faced with an ever more complex set of circumstances, they must decide together if they are willing to embark upon a most unexpected path to parenthood."
"The Call, the first play in Profile Theatre’s new Tanya Barfield season, opened Saturday night at the Artists Rep complex, and suggests a season of playful, contemporary, issue-oriented, and curiosity-driven theater to come. It’s part domestic drama, part cultural-conflict theater, part situation comedy, part mystery thriller, and always smart and engaging." -Bob Hicks, ArtsWatch (You can read the rest of the article by clicking here.)
