Fuddy Meers

By David Lindsay-Abaire

Directed by Stephen Montagna

Fuddy Meers is a wild ride with Claire, a "memory-challenged" woman, and her alleged family. Kidnapped by one husband and pursued by another, Claire seeks the truth. Like the distorted and warped reflections of a funhouse mirror (which the title alludes to), Claire sees herself reflected back to her by a family that wants her to forget the past. There's the all-too-good-to-be-true husband, a mysterious, limping stranger, the pot-smoking teenage son, a tough lady cop, the ventriloquist with a trash-talking dummy, and Claire's mother‚ a stroke victim who can only speak gibberish. David Lindsay-Abaire's play is funny, mysterious, and as the puzzle unravels, ultimately empowering.
