“Women and Wallace”, Queen Anne Fine Arts Building Hallam Theatre
This anti-romantic comedy by Jonathan Marc Sherman is here to show us just how agonizing finding love can be. But if you think this play is anti-love – think again! In a mosaic of poignant, brisk and darkly funny scenes we follow Wallace from the moment he discovers his mother’s suicide at age six through adulthood and his encounters with the women who are irresistibly drawn to him. Women and Wallace tells the TRUTH about love and all of its hysterical, painfully awkward uncertainty and joy.
