A Very Common Procedure


This was a serio-comic play about a wife going haywire after the accidental death of her premature baby. Playwright Courtney Baron's trio of characters come vividly to life as they each take turns narrating the events of this tragedy. Well cast and tightly directed this brisk 90 minute production never lost momentum. My one problem was that the central character (the haywire wife...the haywife) just wasn't very likable. Yes, she just lost her baby and I should cut her some slack but the fact that she totally dumps all over her (very likable) husband for most of the play made it very difficult for me to have sympathy for her. That aside, this was a very unique journey of a play and I was glad I went.
