CTEK Arts presents the award-winning, must-see comedy:

The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife by Charles Busch

Thursdays – Sundays August 15th – September 1st 

(No performance August 22 for Carnival)

Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side Doctor’s wife, is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea-like proportions. She tries to lose herself in a world of art-galleries, foreign films and avant-garde theater, but nothing helps her shake her lethargy. Marjorie’s spirits suddenly soar when Lee Green, her fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend, appears on her doorstep and turns her world upside down.

Featuring Lynda Sturner, Aaron Tone, Jane Macdonald, Phoebe Otis, and Fred Biddle.

Directed by Margaret Van Sant

Winner! Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award Playwriting

“Uproarious, a window rattling comedy of mid life malaise…Mr. Busch has swum straight into the mainstream… The Allergist’s Wife earns its wall to wall laughs.”

– Ben Brantley, The New York Times
