The Swan, by Elizabeth Egloff, follows the story of Dora and Kevin, two fairly typical people having an affair. Kevin is married with a child, Dora has suffered many heart aches and lost loves. Their lives are turned upside down when during a stormy night, a swan crashes into Dora's window. She takes the swan into her house to "nurse" it back to life. Unexpectedly, the swan transforms into a human man, beginning to walk, speak and love. Bill (the name Dora gives the swan) changes everything. Dora is consumed by her need to take care of Bill. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to humor Dora but eventually realizes that she is spending more time with the swan than him. Kevin become jealous and enraged, attempting to whisk Dora away from the swan and this life. The Swan is a modern-day fairy tale of how love can take on many unexpected forms. You have to read the play to find out how it ends....it's certainly a tale worth experiencing.
