Free download Fuddy MeersThis is the funniest play I have ver seen I believe it s almost just as good read as seen but you ll have to let me know i m afraid it s hard to get the full Fresh Water effect of the hilarity of Binky the dementedx con hand puppet across It s taken me far too long to revisit this play I saw it as an undergraduate and was underwhelmed by its plot while ignoring the playfulness and richness of its language As a technical French Daguerreotypes example of how many different voices and translations can populate a play look no further than Fuddy Meers in all its zany shenanigans and longing for a memorable life Most plays are meant to be seen not read so it s rare for me to laugh out loud while reading one but I kept giggling out loud with this one The first few pages alone completely gripped me Despite the fact that it s clearly a comedy I found the last few pages very moving and sad In short this hitvery note I could have asked for in a play reading From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read experience I really hope I get the opportunity to see it live someday Fuddy Meers is about a women named Claire Fiffle Claire has a form of amnesia The form she has makes it sovery day when

A Puppet Amnesia Secret Historiespuppet amnesia secret histories I m fine with wholly weird plays but there was no connection with most of these attributes to the rest of the play they are random to be random There was also no depth or motional core in this play I found this a very shallow read and not nearly as funny or witty as the other three plays by the author that I have read The play is set up so you want to know about Claire and her life but none of it worked for me and for most of it I simply didn t care about Claire or her past defeating the whole purpose of the play This one is a pass for me. By a limping man who claims to be her brother trying to save her from her Twelve Days of Pleasure evil husband They drive to the home of her mother who has had a stroke that left her aphasic her attempt to say funny mirrors provides the play's title Thensuing mayhem is both deliriously funny and oddly touchi. ,
