About Daphne, Tommy, The Colonel and Phil

This brilliantly fresh, hilariously surreal new comedy is a madcap domestic farce about an aged couple who discover that their seemingly perfect marriage is not all it appears to be. As a turbulent past crashes in on them, long-buried secrets turn into imminent danger. But can love conquer all? In a peaceful rural backwater, the irrepressible Daphne and decorated military man Tommy have been blissfully married for sixty-six idyllic years. But recently something’s been troubling Tommy: a terrible secret. For decades he’s been haunted by the memories of a black ops mission gone-wrong during the Korean War, and the fallout from one fatal night is finally catching up with him. With marital bliss on a collision course with the fast-approaching shadows of the past—and with decades of untruths unravelling—perils loom and chaos reigns. Meanwhile, Daphne’s got a secret of her own. Quite a big one…
