Dark Comedy Woman in Mind: A Housewife's Fantasy Spins Into Madness
$9 - $14*
$18 - $28
Playwright Alan Ayckbourn, the comic poet of middle-class life, goes deep and dark in this play about housewife Susan, who's married to boring cleric Gerald. Susan's family treats her with condescension and apathy, until one day when she's knocked unconscious (thanks to a clumsy accident with a garden rake) and wakes up to a fantasy world populated by the "perfect" version of her family. Dressed all in white, the family lives in a stately home, drinks champagne and exchanges compliments. Eventually, though, a good thing goes too far and the dream family becomes a living nightmare -- one that awakens Susan to the fact that she's going mad. Eclipse Ensemble Member and Goodman Theatre Associate Producer Steve Scott directs.
