An extremely good play; a sort of dark scatological modern version of Long Day's Journey Into Night
. I found it quite gripping and can't wait to see it done or be involved in a production. The action kicks off when the patriarch of an Oklahoma family hires a housekeeper to care for his pill-popping wife while he disappears. For good. His three daughters return home, and a number of really gut-wretching but always clever and humorous battles are carried out. It's easy to see why this play is raved about everywhere.
