In a village by the sea, an overprotective mother struggles to keep her three daughters from ever falling in love. The mother’s wishes are met with resistance when a mysterious merchant washes ashore. Love is in the air as each person struggles to listen to the love in their heart. UNEXPECTED is a dark comedy about curiosity, disobedience, honesty, and family – the one we have and the one we choose. A pastiche of Greek and Roman mythological love tales, UNEXPECTED is a piece about choice. This one loves that one, that one dumps this one, another runs off in fear, another chooses to go on, no matter what, and her progeny live, grow up and love in the wake of heartbreak which indelibly marks them and all who love them, leave them or are – most painfully of all – indifferent to them.
