The head of a university in a small town, Dean Wreen's going through a rough patch in life. Midlife's coming toward her at top speed, her school is in dire financial trouble (so she wants to close the school's natural history museum), her ex has returned to live with her (much to the chagrin of her much younger current girlfriend) and she's about to have some other giant, prehistoric problems to contend with in the academic sex comedy Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England. Hailed by The New York Times as "smart, clever ... lively and literate," Mammoths was written by award-winning playwright Madeleine George (The Zero Hour, Precious Little). Learn More

The actors were all very good (one fumbled a few lines, but given the number of words and the pattern of delivery, particularly in the first scene, I don't judge too harshly). But the real star was the play itself. So creatively written in both dialogue and intertwining the stories. Highly recommended.
