Swap Meet

New relationships are full of all sorts of hurdles. There's the first time you spend the night together, meeting your significant other’s friends, and, if there’s long-term potential, meeting the parents. It’s pretty nerve-wracking.

And if you think the parentals in Meet the Fockers were bad, Cheaters makes you realize it can be so much worse. The play escalates the Meet the Parents concept as young lovers Allen and Michelle discover that their parents are secretly sleeping around – with one another. Allen’s mom and Michelle’s dad are a good match, and so are Michelle’s mom and Allen’s dad. Oblivious, Allen and Michelle are in the middle of the chaos, and hilarity ensues.

Fall in love with Cheaters on Friday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m. at Phoenix Center of the Arts, 1202 North Third Street. Performances continue through Sunday, June 16. All-ages tickets are $26. Call 602-254-3100 or visit

Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Starts: May 30. Continues through June 16, 2013
