Madeleine George’s new play is a deliciously smart and funny “academic sex comedy” about life in a small university town. Dean Wreen’s college is in dire financial straits, and a plan to close its on-campus natural history museum is sending unexpected shock waves in every direction—just as the Dean’s ex-girlfriend has come back into her life. This definitely complicates things with her much younger girlfriend, Andromeda. Neither budget cuts nor the shadows cast by seven about-to-be-homeless mammoths are any match for the sweet taste of romance in this hilarious and deeply moving play. Rated M for mature content and language, this production features simulated sex between prehistoric college students and contemporary lesbians. No mammoths were harmed in the making of this play. Mature subject matter and language. Brief nudity.
