Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce, but how many end in murder? Meet two disgruntled housewives from opposite sides of the track: Esmeralda, sophisticated and calculating, and Lydia, foul-mouthed and pragmatic. Both are about to discover the lengths they’ll go to in order to get their husbands’ attention. Premeditation takes audiences on a noir-inspired journey through the intricacies of marriage, while highlighting the Latino Theater Company’s impeccable comedic chops, honed over their thirty years in performance together.
