It could have been Good Wife with Canadian content, but the script was so much more vicious! Paul Gross as Bill and Martha Burns as Judy let loose, demonstrating that both are top rank actors.
We left the show arguing about whether the writer was a man or a woman. Keith claimed it had to be a woman, because it was so hard on the man. I knew it had to be a man because of the misogynist rants in the second act. Bill is so convinced that he is hard done by, that everyone should see the world the way he does and then lashes out when Judy finally stands up and tells him what she really thinks. The resemblance to Mr Adams of a couple of weeks ago was startling. Delusions of the self centred male!
The ret of the cast was strong, although there seemed to be a tendency to channel well known characters (Oprah and Marie Heinen both came to mind).
I classify this as an observational play – the author sees and presents, but takes no sides. And the audience makes the role of voyeur.
PS The author is Bruce Norris
