BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Fuddy Meers” an absurd and catastrophic romp of comedy and toxically quirky characters, on Western’s Performing Arts Center Mainstage at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 6-8 and 12-15, with matinees Feb. 9 and Feb. 16 at 2 p.m.
The play’s protagonist, Claire, has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. To help her get through the day, her husband, Richard, has written a book of her life that she leafs through in bed each day. As Claire struggles through the day, each plot twist reveals a little more about her shrouded past as she assembles her life while fending off a cast of oddballs with hidden motives of their own.
“Fuddy Meers” is the most popular comedy penned by David Lindsay-Abaire, well-known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Rabbit Hole,” which garnered a bevy of Tony nominations. Lindsay-Abaire also provided the lyrics for the hit musical adaptation of “Shrek.”
“Fuddy Meers” is directed by Charlotte Guyette. More information is available at wwu.ed/theatredance, and tickets are available at (360) 650-6146, or online at tickets.wwu.edu.
