The House of Yes: 25th Anniversary Revival of Classic Black Comedy
Zephyr Theatre (West Hollywood, CA)
Love, incest, mental illness and murder — these perverse topics and more are tackled in The House of Yes, Wendy MacLeod’s dark, compelling, exceedingly black comedy, which gets a proper 25th anniversary revival at the Zephyr Theatre. The House of Yes is a cult classic as unsettling as it is funny and moving, telling the story of an upper-class suburban family whose mannered exterior masks a disturbing family dynamic. When the eldest son brings home his fiancée, his bipolar twin sister goes into a tailspin, sparking a chain of events that leads to an astonishing climax. Zephyr producing artistic director Lee Sankowich directs this wickedly entertaining, compelling tale that was made into an award-winning film starring Parker Posey.
