Walking to Waldheim
Walking to Waldheim
By Mayo Simon.

Cast: 3m., 3w. Six mourners, on the way to Rose's funeral, bicker and fuss as the car lurches along. Soon, though, the trip becomes more existential than navigational, as entire lives are lived out in scenes of quiet anguish and uproarious comedy. The inarticulate father, the dying son, the jealous in-law, the angry girl, the lost old man, the mother who tries valiantly to hold her disappearing family together—all have their moments. "Simon takes ordinary folks, imperfections and all, and puts them elbow to elbow with their own human frailty. The laughs come as easily as the pathos." (Los Angeles Times) "This rich and disturbing work succeeds on both realistic and absurdist levels. Like all good plays about the nature and meaning of life on this planet, it leaves an impression in the mind long after one has left the theatre." (Los Angeles Drama-Logue) One simple set.
