Synopsis:  A devout, conservative couple from the Midwest take their first trip out West to the Berkeley Hills to visit their left-leaning cousin.   Both couples are facing their own, respective crises.  Dinah and Bill rely on their god-fearing values and sentiments to see them through; Jeannette and Neil, on the other hand, practice a more free-spirited, open-minded approach.  As philosophical differences escalate between the couples, familial relationships threaten to dissolve -- until the heart's willingness to forgive and understand allows for a new way forward.  


""The Quality of Life" has a genuine thematic depth that couldn't be more welcome in our age of surface distraction.  The play is ultimately more interested in tracking enduring dilemmas of the heart -- how to love and grieve, how to let go and remember." - Los Angeles Times
