A chance encounter in the tuna aisle at a New York City grocery store brings together a neurotic woman and an insecure, affirmation-spouting man. Separately they recount the increasingly absurd confrontation and unveil their own quirks before mysteriously appearing in each others wacky fever dreams. Outrageous playwright Christopher Durang (Betty's Summer Vacation, Beyond Therapy, Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You) lampoons all your favorite 80s iconcs from Sally Jesse Raphael to Dr. Ruth, Ronald Reagan, and Mother Theresa in his hilariously offbeat comedy. Durang, himself a gifted performer, stars with Tony and Emmy Award-winner Debra Monk (Redwood Curtain, "NYPD Blue"), and the Huntington's own Nicholas Martin directs. A tour-de-force from three theatrical powerhouses!
