The Marriage of Bette and Boo (1987)
From the author of Beyond Therapy and Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You, Christopher Durang's latest absurdist comedy, The Marriage of Bette 81 Boo, deftly dissects the family, the foundations of marriage, and the sanctity of the church. Through the eyes of Matt, the first-born son of Bette and Boo Hudlocke, the playwright recounts the story of a baby boom marriage gone bust. The dreams of a young, idealistic couple, their perfect marriage, model children, and hopes for a bright future fall to the wayside when life intrudes. Durang's double-edged pen counters the humor of everyday life with the unrealistic dreams of a modern world.
