UTD To Present David Lindsay-Abaire's
Premiered at Julliard in 1998 and performed in theaters across the U.S., Fuddy Meers is a wild ride with Claire, a memory-challenged woman, and her family. Claire will be played by UTD graduate student Brandi Andrade, who last spring presented a one-woman adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper at UTD. The UTD production of Fuddy Meers includes Shawn Parikh as Claire's too-good-to-be-true husband, Richard; Matt DeVinney as a mysterious, limping stranger; Sean Dick as Kenny, Claire's troubled teenaged son; Meredith Wilson as Heidi, the tough lady cop; Bobby Selah as Millet, a ventriloquist with a trash-talking dummy; and Margaret Chaplin as Claire's mother, Gertie, who lost the ability to speak coherently due to a stroke ("funny mirrors" in her mouth becomes "fuddy meers"). Lindsay-Abaire's play is a puzzle that is funny, mysterious and, ultimately, empowering.
The UTD production of Fuddy Meers contains adult language and mature subject matter and is inappropriate for children.
Tickets for Fuddy Meers are $15 general admission and $10 for students. Tickets will be on sale Mondays to Fridays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Art & Performance Office in the Visual Arts Building on the UTD campus and will be available at the door one hour prior to showtime. Tickets also are available for purchase by phone during ticket office hours by calling 972-883-2982 and charging with Visa or MasterCard.
