Mr. Durang has turned the fear of practically everything into a series of scalding comedies.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
From the same pen that gave you the Tony Award®-winning best play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike comes a decidedly dark and daring comedy that takes hilarious aim at today’s absurd and dangerous world. Christopher Durang is back with a new cast of eccentric characters—starting with Cliff and Salena, whose across-the-street neighbors are at best peculiar—and at worst, stark raving mad.
