The only sure thing in life is death…or is it? Merrimack Repertory Theatre presents Something in the Air, by Richard Dresser. Obie Award winning director Melia Bensussen directs this comedy noir.
A guaranteed investment. How many times has that promise flashed across your Inbox? Nevertheless, what if the return was as certain as Death itself? When Walker bolts into the wrong analyst's office, he finds his salvation in life insurance not psychotherapy. How hard can it be to help ease the pain of a dying man's last days? Harder than anyone could imagine when the terminally ill patient is as contentious, irritable, and vile as Cram. Add the love of a possibly good (but probably treacherous) woman, and a dash of assistance from an accommodating (but not really) nurse, and you have the perfect recipe for ruin. Love and Greed bow low to each other in a seductive dance of comedy and irony, perhaps there was simply Something In The Air.
