Book Description:Â“Laughing wild amid severest woeâ€ť perfectly describes the fiercely ironic comedy of Christopher Durangâ€™s Laughing Wild (which takes its title from this Thomas Gray quotation via Samuel Beckett) and the previously unpublished Baby with the Bathwater.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 womanâ€™s shared nightmare of modern life and the isolation it creates. From her turf battles at the supermarket to the desperate clichĂ©s of self-affirmation he learns at his Â“perÂsonality workshop,â€ť they run the gamut of everyday lifeâ€™s small brutalizations until they meet, with disastrous inevitability, at the Harmonic Convergence in Central Park.
