The tale of the Allergist's wife
april 15-24, 2016
By: Charles Busch
Mid-life malaise is a good excuse for the sexual and psychological liberation instigated by a strangely familiar visitor, in this deliciously devious social satire. This play is laced with wicked fun and delightful surprises.
Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side Doctor’s wife, is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she’s shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend. A deliciously devious social satire, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife is laced with wicked fun and full of delightful surprises.
