Reading OF "Fuddy Mears" at Plattsburgh State Sept. 11
The Theatre Department at Plattsburgh State University of New York presents the first of three play readings during the Fall 2003 semester. The reading of "Fuddy Meers," written by David Lindsay-Abaire, will be on Thursday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. in the Studio Theatre (Room 129), Myers Fine Arts Building. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
"Fuddy Meers" is a politically incorrect adventure, reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland and Brave New World. Claire, the "Alice", meets several bizarre characters on her journey to her mother's home, where she hopes to find the answer to the riddle of the Sphinx. Once Claire and her troupe arrive, they discover that the mother has suffered a stroke and now has her own language.
The New York Times describes "Fuddy Meers" as "heady fun...fresh, zingy dialogue, which reveals in warping the language of self-help books...Mr. Lindsay-Abaire blends clichéd ingredients into something savory and distinctive...wicked fun."
