Sarah Ruhl's highly theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at the class, comedy and the true nature of love.
"An elaborate joke told in Portuguese, without translation. A consideration of the meaning of dust. A trek to Alaska to retrieve a cancer-curing tree. These would not seem promising building blocks for a contemporary American stage comedy. And yet thanks to the alchemical imagination of Sarah Ruhl, the gifted author of The Clean House, this strange grab bag of ideas and images, together with some more exotic ingredients, magically coheres to form one of the finest and funniest new plays you're likely to see." -NY Times
