The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

Written by Charles Busch

March 11-20, 2016

Directed by Matthew Smith

Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged upper west side New York doctor’s wife, spends her days and evenings pursuing culture at various museums and the theatre. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she’s shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend. This hilarious comedy contains strong language and mild adult themes. “Uproarious, a window rattling comedy of mid life malaise…Mr. Busch has swum straight into the mainstream… The Allergist’s Wife earns its wall to wall laughs.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
