The Retreat from Moscow

William Nicholson’s The Retreat from Moscow has nothing to do with Russian history and everything to do with Alice and Edward’s 34-year marriage. Edward is withdrawn and unfeeling, while Alice is all dramatic, over-the-top emotion. When she finds out that he’s been planning to leave her for a long time and that he is, in fact, involved with another woman, the true battle begins. That’s when their son Jamie steps in to mediate the war between his parents. The drama is punctuated with flourishes of wit that are both funny and biting. See at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, through October 29. 2 p.m. October 23, 7:30 p.m. October 27. Country Playhouse,12802 Queensbury. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit $12 to $22.
