‘Dentity Crisis by Christopher Durang, directed by John Cooper
Jane is living a life on the edge— she’s confused about just about everything. With a mother who’s convinced she invented cheese, confusions about whether the man living in her house is her brother or her father, Jane is only sure that she can’t be sure of anything anymore. Playwright Christopher Durang comically paints a picture of one woman’s attempt to cope with it all.
