This Cascadian collection puts together two short comedies by Lyn Coffin. In Fries in a Wineglass, two sisters discover the truth about themselves, and a canned ham. In Lutefisk, two middle-aged lovers connect in an unusual way, and we learn the meaning of “gavage.” These plays deliver substantial themes while remaining light on their feet. They play out over purchased food. Public spaces become stages on which we try to find each other and find, instead, old resentments, new irritations, the uncertainty of memory. And the power of shared history to sustain us.
