About the Show:
At Peter and Rita’s wedding, a mysterious old man insists on kissing the bride. While honeymooning, Peter gradually realizes that the woman by his side is not his wife. The wedding kiss caused Rita’s soul and the old man’s to change places. Peter must track down the old man and free his young love’s spirit trapped in an aging and diseased body before it is too late. This is by no means your typical love story-fairy tale. Lucas’ story reaches the depth of our humanity through a series of absurdly funny but semi-tragic events in this exploration of love and marriage.
