If You Cook I’ll Clean
If you cook I’ll clean is an Inspirational Play/ Dance/Musical dealing with marital problems. The play is written as an entertainment and introduction piece to the new relationship book “If You Cook I’ll Clean” (Book written by Eli Breeden). Our story begins with Kendrick. Kendrick is married with two children, a teenage step daughter and a ten year old son. Kendrick is struggling to make it in the theater world again. The difference is Kendrick learned his craft from mistakes and not school. So the business world is not treating him so well. Juliet his wife works as a fashion designer and carries most of the house hold bills. Juliet is a woman that has gotten use to the finer things in life. And she works hard to try and keep them. Their marriage is going through a rough time……………………….well ROUGH may not be the right word to use. Piece by piece we see their lives fall apart on stage in song and dance. Maybe the start of the downward spiral began when Juliet invites her husband’s father and sister n law to rent rooms from her, behind her husband’s back. Or maybe the fact that the bills have taken both parents eye’s off one of their two children, long enough for their teen to hang in the streets, instead of college.
Juliet and Kendrick both have secrets that make them both worthy of winning Oscars. And as each secret comes to the light we see the change in their household, as it falls apart brick by brick. And well let’s just say the problems even make death a thought! Well if that wasn’t bad enough Kendrick’s cousin has a secret she has been holding for years. A secret so big and mind blowing that the family may not be able to survive it. Counseling through entertainment! This production is a great way to help marriages make it through the rough times, and cherish the great moments with an open heart.
