Synopsis

The characters in Splits are COD-fish, "Children of Divorce." Everybody knows that the real losers in divorce are the children of the divorced couple. This poignant play bares the souls of a typical group of COD-fish. Hopefully, it will help some of the COD-fish in the audience cope. Will it have any effect on parents? Will it prevent some about-to-happen divorces? …Probably not. Will it lead some young adults to think carefully before rushing into marriage? …Possibly. …Hopefully. In our selfish society, where "My happiness is the only happiness that matters," there seems to be little that can be done to prevent divorce. But—who knows?—this play may help. At the very least, Splits should help some COD-fish to heal. The author illustrates young people crushed by the split-up of their parents and one or two who rather enjoy the situation.
