Commedia meets film noir in this comedy about art, ego, obsession …and sticky fruit. A famous writer obsessed with reputation fakes his death in order to read his own obituaries. His shrink knows what’s going on, but can’t tell anyone, not even the writer’s wife. But she’s soon on his trail, as his “death” ignites a chain of outrageous events.
“All told, it’s a full-throated sounding out of the possibilities of live theater. …This play, and this production…are superior in every way.” -Jon Sobel, Blogcritics
