The Marriage of Bette and Boo
A play about good, wholesome, all-American family values: closet alcoholism, self-loathing, hate-filled marriages, stillbirth and the best impression of frying bacon you ve ever seen performed by a priest. When asked his opinion of the piece, a local Catholic was heard to exclaim, "Contraception is wrong! So are those damn gays!" A delightful romp! A vibrant portrayal! Squeaky-clean fantastic fun for - almost - all the family!* Christopher Durang masterfully highlights the comically absurd nightmare of the middle-class American dream in this highly acclaimed piece about growing old, growing up…and acceptance. Conservative people might not find this appropriate for younger children.
