Maggie and Milo have lived separate lives at opposite ends of the country. When both seemingly avoid death on the same they, they find themselves unexpectedly thrust together and back in each other’s lives, wondering exactly what went wrong. Maggie, herself, must re-examin her marriage to the frat boy Lance she married whilst Milo must revisit the heartbreak he never got over. As they come together, they soon realise how much in common they still have and work to mend not only their relationship with each other, but the problems that they are facing.
The Skeleton Twins seems like a really compelling piece that works solely on Hayder and Wigg’s ability to charm and delicately weave thorough comedy into humanistic traits and drama. It’ll, by no means, be centred around whacky humour but instead human portraits to showcase the acting and writing skills of everyone involved. The Skeleton Twins looks clever and that’s the important thing. The its intellectual emotive arc, written by Craig Johnson, may delight many.
