9780881450804: The Wall of Water

Winner of the LA Women-in-Theatre New Play AwardOriginal production: Yale Repertory TheatreThe perfect rent controlled NY apartment has one fatal flaw--the roommate from hell.  The play takes place on the day the newest roommate can't take it anymore.  Classic humor of mistaken identity mixed with new-age twists.  The Wall of Water is farce with all the sharp edges showing--it is an intractably woven tale that tackles subjects as serious as death and as important as scientific inquiry, and everything inbetween.  A farce about the nature of madness, the way it is infectious, how we treat it and how we decided who is and who isn't.  A play with 4 leading roles for young women about strong women and the men who love and sometimes sedate them.

Review:

The more I think about The Wall of Water, the more I like it. Playwright Sherry Kramer is obviously a comic talent to watch.  The script is farcical, swift and funny, but it touches on all kinds of major themes...The whole thing is a festering, bubbling, candy-colored stew of passion, confusion and wildly clashing desires. - Westword

THE WALL OF WATER quickly bursts through the dam of conventional theater for two hours of the kind of inspired and breathtaking chaos so rare on America's stages that we may have forgotten the word for it. The word is farce.... Even though Sherry Kramer's play is gleefully packed with all those most cherished elements of classic farce mistaken identity, miscommunicated messages, misunderstood orders the exasperations which fuel the play's wacky fires from start to finish are recognizably and sometimes grimly contemporary.... What distinguishes Kramer's farce from even her most esteemed European counterparts is four strong female roles at the heart of this eloquent craziness.... --Margaret Spillane, New Haven Independent
