New York City
“American satire at its sick, twisted best… Goner is performed in a controlled frenzy of firework acting by a brilliantly sharp cast.” — The Guardian
“Quite, quite brilliant.” — The Independent
“There are more quotable, wickedly funny lines per minute here than most comedies manage in an hour.” — Metro (London)
Word Monger presents the New York Premiere of Brian Parks’ “high-caliber” medical comedy Goner, directed by John Clancy. At the start of the play, the President of the United States gets shot… and then the fun begins. The assassination attempt thrusts the President into the care of three screwball doctors, while a pair of manic FBI agents hunt down a conspiracy. A play like this comes along only once a season. Twice if you’re schizophrenic.
