Ohio State University’s Department of Theater closes its season with Simone Benmussa’s The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs. Albert is the perfect waiter, he doesn’t drink, smoke, or even flirt with the female help. Maybe because he’s also a woman.
Having taken on the identity of “Albert” to transcend a life of poverty, she finds herself trapped in the role. Benmussa uses the situation to ask questions about the nature of women and society.
