The story of Acts of Love is set in motion when Rob brings home his new girlfriend to meet his parents, who have enjoyed 25 years of marriage. "Now, the door the family has managed to keep closed for 25 years is finally forced open," according to production notes. "Every happy family has its secrets — the ones we keep from each other and the ones we keep from ourselves; and sometimes we get the chance to make the same mistakes twice."
The cast includes Andrew Dawson, Andrew Rein, Abby Royle and Diane Tyler.
The design team for Acts of Love includes Aaron Mastin (set), Dennis Ballard (costumes), Frank DenDanto III (lighting) and Daniel T. Denver (original music). Chetkovich is known for her fiction writing, including her acclaimed short-story collection, "Friendly Fire." Her short play Love and Death was published in "Eight Tens @ Eight Festival."
