The play made me laugh, but not as often as I would have liked. The production did have its flaws. The evening started off with a good natured casual party thrown by Julia, the play’s producer, played by Ilaesia Gray, who was very believable as an uptown wealthy producer.
What comes to mind in this discussion is the play, The Accidental Death of an Anarchist. The play derives a lot of its elements from the genre of pantomime and the silent actions that the madman performs combines elements from Brecht’s epic theatre and also from the traditional genre of the pantomime.
