An award-winning hit at the Manhattan Theatre Club and on Broadway, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST’S WIFE is a comic look at Majorie, the wife of a philanthropic allergist, who is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea like proportions. Her children are grown, her beloved therapist died recently and her mother grates on her nerves. She tries to lose herself in a world of art galleries, foreign films and avant-garde theatre, but finds she is barely able to rouse herself from her sofa. Marjorie’s spirits suddenly soar when Lee Green, a fascinating and somewhat mysterious friend from her childhood, appears on her doorstep and turns her world upside down with shocking results.
