Rubbery with Violets, Or, If You Can See This, Thank Your Optician
By Siobhán Edge
Directed by Jan Levine Thal
Doctors and thieves. Patients and impatience. Mix-ups, slip-ups, trip-ups, pick-ups, hold-ups, cock-ups, and lock-ups. Birth, mirth, howlers, growlers, puns, guns, sons . . . and the Marines. A fast-paced romp using wordplay and physical comedy, proving once again that laughter is, indeed, the best medicine.
