WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND – a comedy of the absurd

 

Seven zany characters converge on the living room of an ordinary middle class house. All the characters are written as humorous  over the top caricatures of normal people.  Throughout the play, the fact that many of the characters have been “at” the local Sanitorium, “Sidcup” is mentioned.

The play begins when a young man, Joseph, brings a rumpled middle aged man, Ethelbert to his home, where both his parents and wife, Lanny, a professional wrestler live. Both Joseph and Ethelbert have been “at” Sidcup.  From the start, it is obvious that Ethelbert does not want to be there. All  Ethelbert wants to do is to go back to Sidcup to find his missing shoes.  Ethelbert is then thoroughly alarmed to find that Joseph’s wife, thinks that Ethelbert is her previous husband, “Bertie. ”  Joseph’s parents, Maxine and Elmer also appear to be completely mad and alarm Ethelbert further.

When a young couple, Theo and Ruthie arrive at the house, it adds confusion to the mayhem.   Theo grew up in the house and wants to show it to Ruthie.   Little does he know that his  mother, Maxine still lives there with her new husband, Elmer.

This play won the Eastern Illinois University New Play Competition last year (under the former title ‘THE ROAD TO SIDCUP’) and was subsequently performed as a staged reading at Eastern.
