When Fuddy Meers opened at the Manhattan Theatre Club in the fall of 1999, it earned the kind of raves that a promising young playwright dreams about. Writing in the New York Observer, John Heilpern called him "some kind of comic genius." And after its sold-out run at MTC, the play moved downtown to the Minetta Lane Theatre for an open-ended commercial engagement.Fuddy Meers revolves around an amnesiac, Claire, who wakes up every morning as a blank slate, on which her husband and teenage son must imprint the facts of her life. On this particular day, the wild shenanigans begin with Claire being politely abducted by a limping man who claims to be her brother trying to save her from her evil husband. They drive to the home of her mother, who has had a stroke that left her aphasic (her attempt to say "funny mirrors" provides the play's title). The ensuing mayhem is both deliriously funny and oddly touching.
