“If you’ve never experienced Sarah Ruhl’s work before — or if you’ve wondered what all the fuss over the lauded American playwright is about — Upstart Productions’ Melancholy Play is a good place to start.
This early work, which opened at the Green Zone in the Design District on Wednesday, is whimsical, surrealistic, even absurdist somewhat in the mode of Eugene Ionesco. You worry that bad things happen to good people? Here really strange things happen to all people.”
