Marion - a busy, working mother - has discovered a devastating secret. She arrives at a parent-teacher interview to accuse the woman who may be the thread that unravels her entire life - her son’s teacher, Teresa. What ensues is a gripping and raw confrontation between two women: one who’s fighting to protect her family, the other who is fighting for the family she has always wanted.

In a new sequel set eight years later, Teresa tries to reconnect with Marion after a heartbreaking tragedy. But is she there for forgiveness, revenge, or something entirely different?

A play about love, grief, betrayal, marriage and aging, Between The Sheets questions the definitions of right versus wrong and the lengths we go to get what we want.
