In “The Goddess” a contemporary New York couple pushes the boundaries of their marriage by agreeing to openly pursue multiple partners. Will their respect for each other’s freedoms promote greater intimacy? Or will their exploration open up a Pandora’s box of unanticipated challenges? Into this modern world a woman of mysterious origin inserts herself to lead our couple to a therapy of ancient prescription and modern import.
Developed by the husband-and-wife team of Justine Lambert and Kenny Nowell, “The Goddess” openly tackles one of society’s hot topics, the sanctity and natural necessity of marriage.

Quotes from The Goddess:
"My husband recognizes that this young woman is sexually attractive –"
"There’s nothing wrong with us. I swear to God. But there’s something wrong with what marriage does to people."
"...this sudden gust of autumn wind blew through your tits."
Looking Glass Theatre, uses non-naturalistic theatrical exploration, and a feminist-leaning aesthetic to push the boundaries of our imagination, and to challenge our understanding of the world.
