Double Durang: An Evening of One-Acts by Christopher Durang

October 14-17, 2018
Lab Theatre


For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls
Directed by David Britt

Wanda’s Visit
Directed by Logan Davies

Get a double dose of the acerbic wit of Tony-Award winning playwright Christopher Durang (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) with two of his most outlandish short comedies! In For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls, Durang’s twisted sendup of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, a fading Southern Belle tries to set up her neurotic, cocktail-stirrer-obsessed son with an outlandish “feminine caller.”  In the absurdist Wanda’s Visit, the lives of a bored married couple are turned upside down by the unexpected guest from hell.

Durang is manic and heartbroken…a comedian whose fury takes the form of farce.
