This comedic drama tells the story of an amnesiac, Claire, who awakens each morning as a blank slate. One morning, Claire is told by a limping, lisping man that her husband wants to kill her. Throughout one crazy day, Claire attempts to navigate fact from fiction with the help of the police, puppets, and the scariest people of all – her family. Author Lindsay-Abaire, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his play Rabbit Hole, says that Fuddy Meers is “a parable about people trying to forget who they are but needing to remember what they’ve done.”
Senior Avni Wadhwani says that Fuddy Meers is a play where you think you know what’s going on, and then five minutes later, you realize that your perception is distorted. Senior Margaret Faust adds, “Fuddy Meers combines humor, poignancy and mystery for a breathtaking performance you won’t forget.”
Fuddy Meers is rated PG-13 for adult language, violence and mature situations.
Cast members include Margaret Faust, Will Hosler, Tamir Menahemy, David Morris, David Schwarz, Avni Wadhwani and Olivia Wiebe.
