Baby with the Bathwater / Laughing Wild: Two Plays

    By

    Laughing wild amid severest woe perfectly describes the fiercely ironic comedy of Christopher Durang s Laughing Wild which takes its title from this Thomas Gray quotation via Samuel Beckett and the previously unpublished Baby with the Bathwater. In Laughing Wild, two comic monologues evolve into a man and a woman s shared nightmare of modern life and the isolation it creates. From her turf battles at the supermarket to the desperate cliches of self-affirmation he learns at his personality workshop, they run the gamut of everyday life s small brutalizations until they meet, with disastrous inevitability, at the Harmonic Convergence in Central Park."
