Carnival Around The Central Figure
Saw Carnival in previews, and the play did resonate with me over the next few days -- as it will with anyone whos kept vigil for a dying loved one. Much humor, despite the topic, and great surrealist skill on the part of the playwright, especially in the second act, when two story lines, separated by a decade, conflate at the wonderfully-staged deathbed. The minister and psychiatrist characters especially were such pitch-perfect lampoonings -- not to mention stand-out performances. Recommended!
