- Program Description
Elliot Norton's guests are Bob Dishy and Cheryl Giannini, the stars of "Grown Ups," a new comedy by Jules Feiffer. This is its world premiere engagement at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge.
An acerbic comedy by the famed cartoonist and author of KNOCK KNOCK and LITTLE MURDERS. It's about a middle-aged journalist who has, at last, grown up - only to find he's trapped in a world of emotional infants. Feiffer constructs a fiendishly complex machine of reciprocal irritation in which Jake (the journalist), his parents, his wife and his sister carp, cavil, harass, hector and finally attack one another with relentless trivia and detonate deeply buried resentments like emotional land mines.
