Additional Info

This long one act is a wildly funny version of an Ingmar Bergman movie gone berserk. Bibi and Harriet are two beautiful sisters at a lake house in Sweden. Bibi is studying psychiatry and painting her toenails and Harriet is going mad. Their father Gunnar is a famous filmmaker who has trouble distinguishing their life from a movie. Then Bibi's long lost husband Max returns, smelling like a fart factory, still troubled since Frodo, the dog, bit off his testicles and then committed suicide by sticking his wet nose in the electric socket. A very dark farce about the very dark nature of reality. In Maupassant & Swedish Movie.
