Its hay fever season, and in the courthouse a judge is popping antihistamines like candy. As a Mideast Peace Conference convenes nearby, an elusive court case is persistently interrupted by domestic squabbles, ethnic slur slinging, and a hallucinating judge. Lawyers and judges, Jews and Christians, homosexuals and chiropractors no one gets off easy in David Mamet's madcap skewering of the American legal system. The esteemed, noble practice of law degenerates into sheer comic chaos as Mamet ponders the most fundamental human question: Why can't we all just get along?
This production of Romance is presented as part of Sex, Satire, Romance, and Ducks a celebration of comic work spanning David Mamet's career including Seriously Funny and a double bill of Sexual Perversity in Chicago and Duck Variations.
