Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Kate and Teddy are trapped in a soggy, lifeless marriage. Then Teddy's old friend Arthur arrives, bearing chaos, knives, songs and his fiancée. FABULOSO is a domestic farce about the pleasure in bedlam and a working metaphor for bringing up babies.
"It moves from the madcap to the contemplative, from two-handed sparring to intimate confessions, from the absurd to the downright practical, back and forth, up and down. Swinging, in short. I think of it as a Reconciliation Comedy. Opposing armies meet, clash, sit down for peace talks, hostilities break out again, a firmer armistice is negotiated, a few more shots are fired, and finally a sort of peace falls on the battlefield. Except with jokes and gags and various other sorts of funny business." —The Oregonian. "FABULOSO is exactly what the title promises: a fabulous fabulist fable!" —CultureShockPDX.blogspot.com. "This high-energy farce is good for more than laughs. It succeeds where so many fail because of an unusually effective emotional component that's just touching enough. It's perfect ballast for the madcap farcical elements, which are executed with precision and a pounding heart. FABULOSO is near-perfect summer entertainment. Playwright John Kolvenbach keeps you guessing while you're laughing. He's a playwright's playwright, sending his well-drawn characters down a carefully plotted structure that reveals its craft only in hindsight." —Eye Weekly (Canada). "FABULOSO is, simply, fabuloso." —Cape Cod Times.
