Fuddy Meers

by David Lindsay-Abaire

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Claire has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. When a man in a ski mask pops out from under her bed, she begins a journey into a world of unusual characters: her stroke-victim mother who speaks only in gibberish, a dimwitted thug with a foul-mouthed hand puppet, her driven husband, her stoned son, and a kidnapped police officer.

A challenging and brutal comedy about memory, trauma and making sense of it all.
