SEVEN HOMELESS MAMMOTHS WANDER NEW ENGLAND at Theater Wit

SEVEN HOMELESS MAMMOTHS WANDER NEW ENGLAND
by Madeleine George
Directed by Theater Wit Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler
https://www.theaterwit.org

"A smart, clever and highly promising new play…lively and literate.” — NY Times

Deen Wreen is having a difficult week. Her campus renovations are meeting stiff resistance from the town and her ex has returned to live with her. This complicates her relationship with Andromeda, her new (and much younger) girlfriend. An examination of the relationships we build, the choices we make and how we say goodbye, Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler, returns to the world of love and academia after last season’s hit, COMPLETENESS. Museums, romance, politics and yes, seven enormous mammoths collide in in this academic sex comedy by one of America’s most fun and original new voices.

Running Time: 2 hours 15 minutes with intermission

    Excellent script, excellent acting. What I took away from this play is quite simple: things are not always as they seem; and there is nothing new under the sun. Andromeda is not quite the brainless twit she initially seems; and the diorama figures are also having relationship issues.

    You may have noticed the ticket cost has increased to $30.00 ($24.00 with the 20% discount). As stated on the posting, "Theater Wit uses a ticket pricing system that changes based on availability for each individual performance, so the earlier someone purchases, the lower the price of the ticket.

    JEFF RECOMMENDED

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. “Hilarious and profound! The best play of the season!” —Hedy Weiss, CHICAGO SUN TIMES

    ★★★ “An exceedingly funny play. I snickered and chortled all night long. Fisher is both moving and bone-dry funny.” —Chris Jones, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

    “Very quirky, very brilliant and very poignant.” —CHICAGO TONIGHT (WTTW)

    It is a fabulously funny satire on academia, it's a very clever send up of lesbian relationships, and at the same time, it's a kind of updated Our Town.

    RECOMMENDED. “Intelligent, erudite and sharply humorous.” —NEW CITY
