Portrait of a Married Couple
Dorit and Alex are having their wedding party. Their impassioned, destructive relationship progresses through various stages from evening until daybreak. The party pushes the potential for argument to its natural climax.
This is a story of an impossible love in which two people torture themselves and others to prove that they are alive.
Portrait of a Married Couple compresses the story of a longer relationship into one night. This compression exaggerates the characters; there are no breaks or compromises. The characters are of today, but the relationship described is timeless.
