Not Even the Good Things is new dark comedy replete with attempted infidelity, weird religion, and plenty of gimlets arriving at Theatre Row.
Grace and Bill are in a funny place. They arrive at a cutesy cabin in the Catskills ready to leave civilization behind for a weekend of delightful debauchery, but that doesn’t quite pan out. Grace is drunk enough, but Bill can’t stop seeing a frightened young girl holding a candle. He’s hallucinating…right? As the other couples arrive and remain oblivious to the girl’s presence, Bill steadily—and hilariously— loses his grip on reality. Meanwhile, Donald keeps hitting on Grace, his girlfriend Jackie has a power-outage-induced panic attack, and Grace takes matters into her own gin-soaked hands. The arrival of the last couple — the oh-so-spiritual Gina and Terrence — sets the stage for a psychological awakening — and unraveling. Does anyone else see the girl? Does anyone care? The nature of shame, sexuality, loyalty, intoxication, and faith are all explored in this achingly funny new play.TICKETS
