Christopher Durang is relentlessly entertaining. Whether his play is a burlesque of other playwrights or an annihilation of the myth of the happy American family, or a vitriolic challenge to organized religion, homophobia, psychoanalysis, or parenthood, the plays are constantly arousing their audiences with hilarity and mirth. He succeeds because of his imagination, inventiveness, courage, and audacity. Blessed with twin gifts--originality and an anarchic spirit--he provides an audience with unruly laughter and outlandish amusement.
