ABOUT THE SHOW:
The Flu Season by Will Eno
"The Flu Season" is a tour de force not only of emotion but of language. It’s frightening, it’s intoxicating. And it’s very funny. The Ionesco-like Absurdist reminds us that we all talk past each other and never-ever listen. Since we are all, to some degree, the playwrights of our own lives, questions take on deep shadows from the actions onstage as well as actions in our lives. Self-consciously intelligent, dancing ever on the edge of absurdity, "The Flu Season" takes place at a "Psychiatric Retreat Center," at which the dog-eared man meets woman scenario receives a painful injection of reality, faced with [a love story gone askew]. As riveting as the characters are, the real star of this play is the caged panther of a script. Ambivalent and rife with wordplay, "The Flu Season" is at once manic and strangely contained.
