By Richard Dresser
Directed by Geoffrey Leeder
Richard Dresser’s comedy juxtaposes a hilarious “Friends” like sitcom with a dark, comedic sub-text.
A close-knit New England family is shaken to its core when a minor misunderstanding spirals out of control. Max and Barry, two brothers, find themselves at odds when Barry’s wife, Patty, misinterprets a dinner invitation, feels she was deliberately excluded and embarks on a full scale scorched-earth policy of truth telling. Max’s girlfriend, Jennifer, and mother, Lydia, are drawn into the fray as loyalties shift and relationships are ruthlessly examined.
This is the first time that Wonderful World has been staged in Perth.
