About this show

Mr. Marmalede details a precocious four-year-old's alarmingly adult relationship with her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade. The Austin Chronicle says Mr. Marmalade is "good ol' Charlie Brown and the gang, as ghost-written by Christopher Durang." Lucy is a precocious four-year-old with an alarmingly adult imagination. Her imaginary friend Mr. Marmalade comes accessorized with cell phone, personal assistant and a very busy schedule, and when he misses their tea-party date (again), Lucy dumps him for the suicidal five-year-old next door. In a disturbingly funny whirlwind of food fights, porno mags, tea sets and cocaine habits, Lucy enacts a wild vision of adult dysfunction.
