Overview

When Marie decides to leave Bruce, she delivers herself of a torrent of ferocious humor and foul-mouthed vituperation concerning him and their marriage, not to mention love, hate, caring, commitment, and all the other current clichés about relationships. As he follows Marie and Bruce through breakfast, a friend’s party, and dinner, Wallace Shawn brilliantly orchestrates her savage attacks and his slyly passive defenses into a symphony of subversive propositions about the nature of the marital state.

Editorial Reviews

Newsweek
MARIE AND BRUCE is the best play I've seen this season, a play that sees, hears, smells and tells more about the way we really live now than any American play in years.
Cue Magazine
The play is unique and true, its author special.
NY Post
He has a true comic gift not only for the bizarre incident, but also for thumbnail-sketches and even the portrait of a relationship.
