When Christopher Durang wrote his nervous breakdown of a play nearly 20 years ago, Laughing Wild reflected the anxiety of a world gone mad. Today the consuming cultures of sex, celebrity, religion and self- helpdom have not abated. Add the manic-depressive humor and the paranoia of unimagined urban terrors waiting outside one’s door and you have a fitting play for a new era.

Taking a Beckett line to heart — laughing wild amid severest woe — Durang crafts a lunatic work in which two characters, simply labeled Woman (Amidar) and Man (Cline), are overwhelmed by what’s happening in the world around them. Desperate to communicate and connect, they seek sanctuary in asylums, clinics and, during the course of the play, a theater.

L.I.P. Service’s season opener is guaranteed to leave you screaming with laughter…. or just screaming.
