World Premiere

INVIGORATING FUN!
A lively, chilling new comedy.
Clark’s writing has a tantalizing sharpness.
Deftly diagnoses an aggrieved strain of male megalomania as the root of society’s biggest problems right now.

A sharp-tongued comedy about the fragility of fame, privilege, and power

Millions of women across America rely on Dr. Irving Baer and his daytime talk show to help them lose weight, manifest their destinies, and take their health into their own hands. Then, a take-down piece of journalism goes viral, leaving his career hanging in the balance, his marriage on the rocks, and his carefully maintained public persona in peril. In the frenzy of crisis management that follows, one thing becomes clear…if Irving Baer is going to fall from grace, he's bringing everyone else with him. Eliza Clark's hilarious new comedy exposes the shaky foundations of the wellness industry, the fleeting nature of 21st-century fame, and the relationship between the powerful men who dole out advice and the women who are supposed to receive it with a smile.

Nothing had prepared me for the hilarity of this cracker jack comedy or its ability to skewer so many targets at one shot. Playwright Eliza Clark takes no prisoners.
