There are three couples in this play, the men all working for the same firm. One of the younger men is having an affair with the wife of the oldest, and when each return home suspiciously late one night or early one morning they invent a story about having to spend some time smoothing domestic matters in the home of the third couple. Both living rooms are shown in the single set, and both share a common dining room which takes on a character of its own as it serves two dinners simultaneously on two different nights. Of course, the third couple have to show up to put the fat in the fire, but that complication only adds to the fun of this famous farce.
"A theatrical adroitness as clever as tennis at its best. " - The New York Times
"A comedy of ingenuity and verve.... A farce of remarkable originality." - Herald Tribune
Meet The Cast!
Robin Carson - Teresa Phillips has worked for such companies as Beowulf Alley, Winding Road, Something Something, The Comedy Playhouse, and The Road Runner Theatre Company to name a few. Her favorite roles include Charlotte from Beyond Therapy, Marela from Anna in the Tropics, and Lucy from What Every Girl Should Know. She is very excited to be working with Roadrunner Theatre Company again, and is looking forward to working with them on many more wonderful projects.
Larry Fuller - Frank Foster was seen in the first show in this space, Leading Ladies as Duncan. He also got to direct Beyond Therapy, and God’s Favorite for Roadrunner. In a span of forty-three years, Larry has appeared on stages in Philadelphia, West Palm Beach, and Tucson. His favorite roles include Oscar in The Odd Couple, Doctor Einstein in Arsenic and Old Lace, Reverend Hooker in Dearly Departed, Benny Southstreet in Guys and Dolls, Fish Kharma in Babylon Tucson and Babylon Tucson: The Cool Yule, and Renfield in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Although he may not look it, Larry is a grandfather and he dedicates this performance to not only his grandchildren, but his daughter, her husband, his brothers, best friends (and they know who they are); and in loving memory of his parents, Edie and Ed Fuller - his inspirations.
Vincent O’Neill - Bob Phillips has always sought both his Place and his Passion on the stage. He approaches his craft with the reverence of an artist and the humor of an entertainer. Vincent has an uncanny ability to draw others into the entrancing allure of his devotion to a world of limitless possibilities and the magic of being transported into another time, another character, another story. Vincent has been honing his skill since middle school and into college. He has taken on an impressive array of roles in performances of Kill Me deadly, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Jungle Book, Property Rites, Wait Until Dark, and Perfect Timing. Vincent shares with the world around him a zeal for the theatre that invites others toward his infectious enthusiasm. His charm and earnest investment in those around him creates ardent and enthusiastic theatre goers out of those who would have otherwise never experienced the exquisite experience of live theatre. Vincent is one of those rare and wonderful souls that effortlessly captivates hearts and minds with both ease and sincere intention. It is these gifts that can be seen and those that defy description that will deliver Vincent toward his dream of Broadway and everything else he desires or imagines.
Mike Saxon - William Detweiler is a native Tucsonan and a U of A graduate, majoring in Theatre Education. He’s currently the Artistic Manager for Streetlamp Productions and the Development Director for Something Something Theatre Co. Mike is proud to make How The Other Half Loves his Roadrunner debut after 10 years in Tucson Theatre. He would like to thank his family and friends for their unconditional support (even if he’s made some rather inspired choices over the years).
Nicolette Shaffer - Mary Detweiler is thrilled to be making her Roadrunner Theater debut. She was last seen on stage at St. Francis Theater in the drama Luna Gale. Joanne has recently moved to Tucson from Northern Arizona where she performed in numerous stage productions.

Joanne’s film credits include productions for the British BBC, The Discovery Channel and CBS/Lifetime Television. She also works extensively behind the scenes as a voice artist, writer and producer with Big Picture Video Production. Before relocating to Tucson, Joanne was the founding director of Park Avenue Theater, a musical theater company for children and teens in Prescott, Arizona. Joanne would like to thank Chloe Loos, a true ‘actor’s director’ and the outrageously talented cast and crew of Perfect Timing.
Carrie Silverman - Fiona Foster is very excited to be back at the Roadrunner Theater Company. He previously played many different roles in last year’s production of ’Twas the Night Before Christmas including Santa. Since we last saw Alan he has gained employment within Arizona Rehab Campus (ARC). While at ARC, Alan has created a new concept called “Theater Therapy” which fostered teamwork/building, self-confidence, theater appreciation and most of all fun! This program will be implemented in the near future. Alan would like to thank his brother, friends, family and coworkers for being so supportive of all his endeavors within his passion of theater.
