About this show

Eastenders Repertory Company presents the Northern California premiere of Wonder of the World, by David Lindsay-Abaire. The play is a mixture of the funny and farcical and the dark and disturbing, achingly sad and real and outrageously silly and absurd, at one and the same time. It follows Cass as she embarks on a wild adventure of self-discovery, leaving her home and husband after finding out he is not the man she thought she married. At Niagara Falls, Cass encounters other equally eccentric and compelling characters, each with a dark secret, each on his or her own personal quest: Lois, a suicidal alcoholic appointed by Cass to be her sidekick; a pair of elderly madcap detectives; white knight Captain Mike of the Maid of the Mist sightseeing tour boat; a clown therapist; and Cass' sad-sack, sweater-clad husband, Kip. By the time the curtain comes down, the coincidences are piled one atop the other, life is revealed to be a series of happy and unhappy accidents and the randomness of the universe is the only certainty.
