Like a version of The Cosby Show
's Clair and Cliff Huxtable gone horribly wrong, Dressing for Our Lives
finds married couple Meredith and Stan struggling to raise their 13-year-old daughter Megan. Meredith can't stay sober, Stan can't stay faithful, and this '80s-set dark comedy can't help but pull the gauzy veil off of our collective memories from that sitcom-styled decade. Those years of Alex P. Keaton, Ronald Reagan, Cabbage Patch dolls, Rubik's cubes and mullets take on a decidedly different feel when viewed through this play's prism. It's a wild, funny ride through an era when things like materialism, drunkenness, psychobabble, interracial marriage and even being in the closet could be almost absurdly different than how we remember them.
