“Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives, and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter, all of which pushes her perilously close to the water’s edge.
Contains mature themes and language.”
Ben Brantley, in the New York Times wrote “clearly, Mr. Lindsay-Abaire hasn’t lost his playfully wicked eye, equally appalled and affectionate …his style both embraces and spoofs the All-American appetite for spiritual lift, sitcom perkiness, and slimy tabloid prurience.”
“Wild and crazy. David Lindsay-Abaire delights in the demented” –AP
“People in psychic pain have never agonized so hilariously as in David Lindsay-Abaire’s revved-up, joyously zany play” –Washington Post
