Oliver Parker!

In Elizabeth Meriwether’s intensely sad and sick new comedy, a rich teen (Michael Zegen) pals around with a dying alcoholic (John Larroquette) and tries to seduce a grieving, middle-aged U.S. senator Willa (Johanna Day). Meriwether’s forte is sketching emotionally shambolic characters who are both charming and deeply deranged, and Evan Cabnet’s giddy but driving stageFARM production couldn’t be more optimal. Larroquette is a born physical comedian with a velvety, musical baritone; Zegen expertly dispenses acid sass, and Day offers some of the most emotionally naked work I’ve seen from her.—David Cote
