A fatally errant showerhead sets in motion a darkly comic and twisted series of events for a struggling writer and his neurotic sister in this hilarious and touching comedy by award-winning New York playwright Nicky Silver. Sebastian Bliss and his sister Bernadette, twins who haven't communicated in years, are reunited, joined by Bernadette's husband Kip, a dystopian dentist. As we follow their journey we meet an eccentric cast of characters, including Sebastian's self-mutilating psychologist, his pen-pal the convicted murderer, and one mildly marauding male prostitute! "Archly absurdist comedies come cheap these days. Finding one with depth of feeling is truly a cause to celebrate." -- The New York Times This play contains mature language and themes. Will Call and Box Office open 1/2 hour prior to curtain.
