'Dentity Crisis Comedy/Satire 5 (2m, 3f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Recovering from a nervous breakdown, Jane is nursed and nagged by her relentlessly cheerful mother, and confused by her oversexed brother—who keeps changing into her father, her grandfather and her mother's French lover. Eventually all (including Jane's psychiatrist, who undergoes a sex change operation and swaps places with his wife) change characters again and become Jane herself—leaving her with no identity at all and pointing up the near impossibility of self-identification in our uncertain times.

First presented by the Yale Repertory Theater. An inventive, antic and mercilessly revealing black comedy, which deals harshly with the pretensions of modern psychiatry. "…irreverent mixture of parody, satire, theater jokes, and nonsense." —New Haven Register. "Durang's writing is short and sharp moments of wit and hilarity." —Variety.

He encounters Joseph, the son of the now deceased black man who was once the janitor of the once thriving synagogue that Marty attended as a child, and whose recollections of those long ago years parallel his own.

90° in the Shade Comedy/Satire 6 (4m, 2f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

It is the custom of Hector Pomadour to invite his friends to his home on Sunday for lunch and skittles. On this occasion, one of them has run into another gentleman on his way and has invited him to join the group. Hector is delighted, as Adolphe Dumanoir seems to be a man worthy of cultivation, at least, that is, until he is caught hugging and kissing Hector's wife. This, of course, calls for satisfaction, and despite the summer heat a duel is decided upon—after Hector has been assured by his friends that the guilty party would never think of defending himself against the injured husband. When Dumanoir makes it clear that he has no intention of being so foolishly gallant the picture changes, and while Hector and the others huddle to discuss strategy Madame Pomadour and Dumanoir hatch a little plot of their own. He agrees to let Hector off with a scratch, provided that Madame P. gives him another kiss. This she does, only to be discovered again—and the outrage is aggravated. But Gallic ingenuity comes to the fore, honor is satisfied, and all ends in a spirit of jovial camaraderie.

A gay and witty study of what happens when one French gentleman comes upon another French gentleman kissing the first gentleman's wife.
