About this show

Primary Stages presents the New York premiere of Strictly Academic, an evening of academic absurdities and quick-witted hilarity by A.R. Gurney. The curtain rises on "The Problem," a surreal farce in which a husband and wife discover that their secret lovers have not been so secret after all. Next is "The Guest Lecturer," a comedy about an eccentric artistic director with a very unorthodox method of keeping her audiences coming back; and a guest artist who knows not of the pivotal role he is poised to play in her sadistic scheme. Paul Benedict directs.
