About the Play
I don't think it's the life I'm supposed to have… I am happy and bubbly! I am a tall glass of bubbly cider!
Directed by Yvonne E. Pilarczyk
- Some dark themes
- Adult language
Cass, in an attempt to leave behind her deadly dull life and husband, flees to Niagara Falls. There she becomes entangled with various neurotics — a heartbroken tour-boat captain, a half-hearted would-be suicide, a pair of incompetent but heartless private eyes — all of whom, before the play is over, discover they are connected in a weird lattice of coincidence.
David Lindsay-Abaire has a flair for creating quirky but believable characters and enmeshing them in kooky, unbelievable, entertaining plots. Like all truly witty comedy writers, he is a poet in disguise, and as Cass checks items off her list of "things to do in life," she takes the audience on a hilarious and moving journey.
