By Christopher Durang
Oct 2 – Oct 18
Baby With the Bathwater defies categorization. It begins as a comedic roller-coaster ride through a madhouse of parenting nightmares, and just when we have forgotten that there might actually be a little person at the root of Helen and John’s struggles, Durang thrusts us into the wake of their misguided voyage; and we find ourselves watching the world from the identity-challenged perspective of their progeny: the child whose name never quite sticks. Durang manages to simultaneously enthrall and appall with joyful abandon. Cringes and belly-laughter topple one on top of the other, with the unlikely consequence of revealing a deep sense of reverence for the family ties that bind. This is an irresistible outing with an absurd genius of a writer.
“an outrageously funny show and a somehow accurate portrayal of the insanity of parenting… Harried and humorous.”
“horrifyingly funny, played to gloriously absurd perfection by an accomplished cast… laughter and much food for thought.”
