First of all, let me start off by saying Happy Halloween. I've got nothing planned for the night, and I think I'm ok with that. However, I'm getting ready for my trip to DC in just a few short weeks. I'm going for the weekend to see the new play Tionne is in, called "Marriage Material" Read more info after the jump!
Esteemed lawyer Koren Lyles has been known to slay hearts, but what happens when each of her past romantic casualties, end up at a premarital weekend retreat all together? It's a date with disaster!
Koren has it all and unfortunately far more than she bargained for. Life was good, she was up for partner, and her loving boyfriend, Joey Harris, proposes marriage. Then her life changes when her old flame, Cameron, who is also her boss, professes he wants to leave his wife for her. Not knowing how to deal with him, she let Joey persuade her into going to a couples' retreat to see if they are ready for marriage. Everything comes tumbling down when her ex fiance', Michael, and her best friend, Jackie, are there too... Engaged! The retreat gets heated when she is forced to deal with her past, Cameron coming to claim her, and skeletons that come out of the closet between her and Joey. The weekend turns into a whirlwind as emotions erupt, perceived friendships become fake, secrets are shouted, and old love goes to war with new love!
There is only one person who can deal with these issues, he has a black belt in Karate, a PhD in romance, and he's an ordained minister - introducing Bishop Luther Lance Love Jones. Bishop Jones is known for his words of wisdom and his advice for sexual healing. He has a technique that checks attitudes at the door, breaks you down to build your relationships back up better than before. When his own marital woes start to interfere with the retreat and tears down his own life, the weekend falls completely apart. Couples are forced to examine the strength of their love and ability to survive the "happily ever after," and if anybody at all is Marriage Material?
