"Award winning playwright Doug Delaney turns the brackish water of human tragedy into the sparkling wine of high comedy...Avery J. Coping explores the dark side of a fatal illness, illuminating it with wit, wisdom and lyric cadence." - Ponte Vedra Recorder

"Drives a comedic stake through the ugly black heart of small town Americana, with its backwater mores, archaic ideals and neurotic characters. It is a thought provoking play that is also very funny and endearing. Delancy has injected guffaw producing humor into a serious play with such finesse, he effectively drives home his premise without pretension." - First Coast Entertainer

Aligned with sardonic comedy, this script reveals the struggles of someone suffering from a debilitating disease, but struggle for the entire family is uncovered through the ranting of the self-proclaimed matriarch of the family, control-freak, OCD-laden, Cornelia.  The dialogue and comedic quips she shares with her underappreciated, people-pleasing daughter, Bartha,  lend to the audiences ability to connect to these characters and their stories.  The characters are familiar and the script flows smoothly through the short glimpse into the past and present of Avery J. Coping.
