About the event
Christopher Durang’s most deeply felt play take place at the point where laughter and weeping intersect. The two-character "Laughing Wild” is simultaneously hilarious and saddening as Durang touches hauntingly and hilariously on the agonies of modern existence, dementia, supermarkets, the ozone layer, and God’s alleged interest in the Tony Awards.
Grand satire… savagely, consistently on target…
Mr. Durang is one of the funniest men in the world, able to make the audience laugh time and time again, taking us by surprise with his one-of-a-kind jokes and his relentless bitter satire.
