Event Attributes

The Weekday Players present Melancholy Play, a farce by Sarah Ruhl, exploring the driving forces of emotion and love. Melancholy Play, written in 2002 by Sarah Ruhl, follows the emotional roller coaster ride of Tilly, a bank teller who is loved by others, including her therapist, her hairdresser, and a bank customer, for her constant state of melancholy. But when Tilly discovers happiness, her joy throws everyone off. Her sadness, we learn, was seductive, but her happiness is just irritating.
