The clever writing jumped out at me all throughout the play, driving home serious points with quirky playfulness; the directing was also a standout, lending a solid and entertaining cohesiveness that allowed the dialogue and characters to play in the absurdist world without losing their footing.
What I didn't like
My overall impression
I was fully prepared by the description “absurdist comedy” to shrug my shoulders and smile, but “Uterine Affairs” made a lot more sense than I expected, on an emotional level. We take a frustrating, cyclical journey with “Mary”, a virgin who has become pregnant and seeks an abortion, and is only offered a myriad of nonsensical, absurdist explanations as to why not. The characters repeat themselves, as if this adds sense or weight to their reasoning, and it adds to the confusion and lack of logical answers as Mary attempts to journey to a clinic “1973 miles away”.
