Baby with the bathwater, and, laughing wild : two plays  pbk.

by Christopher Durang

"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Durang's Laughing Wild (which takes its title from this Thomas Gray quotation via Samuel Beckett) and the previously unpublished Baby with the Bathwater.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 "per-sonality workshop," they run the gamut of everyday life's small brutalizations until they meet, with disastrous inevitability, at the Harmonic Convergence in Central Park.
