Originally produced by Brass Tacks Theatre Human spontaneous combustion is not something that most people worry about, but Amalia Parker does, and that's why she won't sleep with Rob.  Sex with someone she doesn't care about might not be so dangerous, but with the man she truly loves?  Spontaneous combustion is a definite possibility.  This is the kind of logic that only makes sense in the Parker household, where mom cooks obsessively, dad has turned the house into an interior 18 hole golf course, and ancient maiden Aunt Emily does laundry and practices the family art of selective sight.   When Rob manages to talk Amalia into ignoring her fears, the worst happens. Amalia's sister Mary Catherine arrives for the funeral, and Amalia and Rob have a terrible choice to make.  A sweet, quirky comedy.

Review:

about DAVID'S REDHAIRED DEATH: Sherry Kramer's extraordinary play...is like a puzzle: after slowly and painstakingly connecting a series of dots, one uncovers an integrated image out of what appeared to be chaos. --The Chicago Reader

about THINGS THAT BREAK: ...a terribly difficult, painfully beautiful play... This is a wildly imaginative piece of work. --Nelson Pressley, The Washington Times

about THE WALL OF WATER: 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. --Margaret Spillane, New Haven Independent
