Bunbury: A Serious Play for Trivial People | [Tom Jacobson]

Bunbury: A Serious Play for Trivial People

What if...Romeo and Juliet lived happily ever after? Or Blanche Dubois didn't go crazy? Or the three sisters actually made it to Moscow? When he discovers he's only a fictitious, never-seen character in Oscar Wilde's timeless The Importance of Being Earnest, Bunbury joins forces with Rosaline, Romeo's never seen obsession from Romeo and Juliet. Together they infiltrate and alter classic literature, starting by accidentally giving Romeo and Juliet a happy ending.

Audible Editor Reviews

What would happen if Romeo and Juliet had a happy ending, Tennessee Williams's Blanche Dubois did not go mad, or Chekhov's Three Sisters really did make it to Moscow? This play strives to answer these questions. To recap all the literary and dramatic alterations found in this play would be impossible. What is possible to note is the outstanding performance by Peter Paige, who, as Bunbury, employs an animated vocal style to create a most interesting character. Overall, the production is well paced, with each character definitively voiced with energy and focus. Listeners will enjoy this journey through altered classic literature.
