About this show

A new romantic comedy of lost lovers and tormented ducks! "Grand mischief... beautifully delivered...Neff truly amazes."   - Chicago Free Press "Briskly paced and breezily acted...calls to mind Coward's Private Lives...a multitude of door slamming farcical high jinks...director Shavzin maintains a light staunchly, effortlessly insubstantial as it should be."  - Time Out Chicago "Slezak is good at delivering wry, dry one-liners, and the cast...good at delivering them, especially Judy Blue as a tippling American divorcee and Lucas Neff as a Parisian bellhop with sidelines in therapy and terrorism."   - Chicago Reader Jeffrey A. Katz, presents the world premiere of Slaphappy, a romantic comedy of lost lovers and tormented ducks, by Chicago playwright Gary Slezak. Set in a Paris hotel, the play explores the idea of happiness through the eyes of four Americans, a loopy bellboy, an astute concierge, and a society of pâté lovers. Battling couples, exploding rockets, mistaken medications and a taste of foie gras come together in a delirious confection.
