Any playwright who’s going to have his heroine’s life fall to pieces the instant the lights come up would be well advised to have Christine Lahti on hand. Paul Downs Colaizzo does, and as a result, his domestic sitcom, about a stay-at-home suburban hausfrau and her disappointing family, plays briskly and mostly funnily. Colaizzo has given his play the structure and rhythms of a Neil Simon comedy, then laced its content with complications – racism, bulimia, incest – that Simon would never countenance. Knowing this is not an entirely comfortable mix, director Michael Kahn opts to keep the talk brisk, and the cast in motion in this world premiere staging. (BM)
