About this show

Dario Fo & Franca Rame's gritty comedy about a housewife driven to put down her iron and pick up a gun, A Woman Alone is a colorful black comedy about a housewife held prisoner in her own home, driven to attempt suicide by her abusive relationship with a possessive husband, the drudgery of household chores, a passionate affair with a young boy, and constant harassment from her wheelchair bound brother-in-law. In Harry Kondoleon's brilliantly imaginative black comedy, Self-Torture and Strenuous Exercise, two couples are caught in a web of infidelity, loneliness, desire, and denial. As Alvin retreats further and further into his world of vegetables in a quest to understand "God's great recipe," Bethany, Carl, and Adel are left fighting their hearts' battles on the literary plain.
