Courtesy photo Vickie (Lindsay Tallian) and Alan (Adam Lindemier) have an argument on the set of "Till Death Do Us Part," presented in November by the Flat River Community Players.

GREENVILLE — “Till Death Do Us Part” by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore is the fall production of the Flat River Community Players.
The comedy, directed by Joana Johnson, is a delightful look at modern marriage in all its marred majesty that will have you rolling in the aisles. The play is narrated by a jaded bachelor, Sam Crumm (Gavin Kendick-Brown), who knows the bloom inevitably leaves the rose.
The play opens with a pristine view of marriage: A wedding album slideshow of four happy couples’ weddings.
Alan and Vickie (Adam Lindemeir and Lindsay Tallian) are so in love they never notice that they have absolutely nothing in common. Hal and Rhonda (Jeff Wyckoff and Sandy Kirchinger) spend every second of their free time in bed, thinking up new ways to jazz up their sex life.
Bud and Linda (Jake Corl and Alex Ellis) seem perfectly matched. She finds his weaknesses attractive and he enjoys being weak.
Mitchell and Fran (Jeremiah Souza and Whitney Stek) are in love and make those around them want to gag.
These images of happiness are quickly supplanted by the reality of the couples’ eroding relationships. By the time all four couples check into the Earle Brother’s Honeymoon Lodge & Trout Fisharium their marriages are in an advanced state of disrepair
They need to make a decision: Shoot my spouse or forgive them all their faults and annoying imperfections. There doesn’t seem to be a happy ending in sight, but it is full of hilarious surprises.
