Nearly Naked Theatre - Fuddy Mears

Favorite nearlynakedtheatre's new show - Fuddy Mears.

There's a review below - I couldn't have said it better myself. Except - GO, it's hilarious - here through the 13th.

Nearly Naked Theatre presents the Arizona Premiere of Fuddy Meers, by David-Lindsay Abaire. This poignant and brutal new comedy traces one woman's attempt to regain her memory while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters. Claire has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. This morning, like all mornings, she wakes as her chipper husband comes in with a cup of coffee, explains her condition, hands her a book filled with all sorts of essential information, and he disappears into the shower. From there her day becomes a harrowing rollercoaster ride as she meets a limping, lisping, half-blind, half-deaf man in a ski mask, her perpetually stoned son, her gibberish-speaking mother, a dimwitted thug with a foul-mouthed hand puppet and a claustrophobic lady-cop. It's one hilarious turn after another, through the day of an amnesiac trying to decipher her fractured life.
