Thanks to reader welq for the tip!
From the website: When Dottie Nerber’s son and daughter arrive to pack up the contents of their mother’s Florida home, their conflicting memories of her collide. As the siblings unpack family secrets, they must separate fact from fiction and are forced to question the narratives of their own lives. James Lecesne’s new full-length play is an unflinching and comedic look at how one family deals with the effects of Alzheimer’s. It asks why we tell the stories we do about the people we love, and how we live with those stories after they’ve been debunked.
The scoop from welq: The only real male nudity in a real play in a long, long time is Dan Domingues in The Mother of Invention, at Abington Theatre through Feb. 26. He’s thirtyish, gym body, cut (to my eyes) & semi-shaved. An hour in to the 100-minute play, he takes off his T shirt, his jeans & his boxer shorts, in that order, to give “all” of himself to a woman, until her brother walks in unexpectedly; as is normal these days, the sight of a penis is supposed to be screamingly funny. He’s naked for only about 5 seconds. Sit on the LEFT side of the house, center right might be ok, but far right fuhgettaboutit. Discount code: mother35.
