The Bug Theatre says
Veronica, already scarred by too many failed relationships, finds the world a frightening place so she has committed suicide, and is now in what she expected to be heaven but is instead something called the Bardo (the netherworld in Tibetan Buddhism), and the forces there keep trying to make her reincarnate. So far she's thwarted these return visits to earth with a sort of "spiritual otherworldly emergency brake system" she seems to have. She doesn't like being alive, and post-9/11 finds the world even scarier than when she was there. A lovely if strong-willed Indian spirit guide named Maryamma, however, is intent on getting Veronica back to earth so she can learn the lessons her soul is supposed to learn.

"This is Durang at the top of his metaphysical, apocalyptic, high-and-pop cultural game - thoroughly lovable. And funny." NY Newsday

"With MISS WITHERSPOON, Christopher Durang recovers the wonderfully irreverent humor that has made him famous - this is easily New York's funniest show." Bloomberg News.

Featuring Gina Walker, Rekha Ohal, Debra Caamano, Kenneth Michael Stellingwerf and Deb Flomberg.
