As the play begins Bette and Boo are being united in matrimony, surrounded by their beaming families. But as the further progress of their marriage is chronicled it becomes increasingly clear that things are not working out quite as hoped for. Conveyed in a series of dazzlingly inventive interconnected scenes, this Obie Award-winning play moves wickedly on through three decades of divorce, alcoholism, madness and fatal illness—all treated with a farcical brilliance which, through author Christopher Durang’s unique talent, mines the unlikely lodes of irony and humor residing in these ostensibly unhappy events.
This production is suggested for adults and young people ages 13 and up.
