Betty's summer vacation
Marked by biting wit, hilarious parody, revealing characters, and a pastiche of pop culture, the plays of Christopher Durang have garnered acclaim, controversy, Obie awards, and a devout following. His new play, Betty's Summer Vacation, has been hailed by Alexis Greene in In Theater magazine as "the funniest play Durang has written since The Marriage of Bette and Boo."Looking for a little rest and time by herself, Betty rents a summer share at the beach. But Betty's luck turns to delicious lunacy when this sensible Every woman gets drawn into the chaotic world of some very unsavory housemates -- her friend Trudy, who talks too much; the lewd, seminaked Buck, who tries to have sex with everyone; and Keith, a serial killer who hides in his room with a mysterious hatbox. With sand between her toes, walking a thin line between sanity and survival, poor Betty will leave her summer vacation more terrorized than tan.
