THE DEEPEST PLAY EVER: THE CATHARSIS OF PATHOS NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: March 9, 2012
Did He Like It?*
In The Deepest Play Ever, our antiheroine Mother LaMadre and her rag-tag crew drag their wagon through the Fifth World War and the post-post-apocalyptic wasteland that is New Europe. Together they must navigate all the pitfalls (and rewards) of the dramatic art of drama to find the few remaining books the art-abolishing Evil Empire have yet to destroy.
Inspired by Brecht, and Zombies

"From a show called “The Deepest Play Ever: The Catharsis of Pathos,” you’d expect overstatement, and that’s what you get with Geoffrey Decas O’Donnell’s musical satire, revived at the New Ohio Theater and retooled from a 2006 incarnation. What you don’t get is boredom, given its phantasmagorical riffing on Brecht’s “Mother Courage” (among countless influences cited in the program). Oh, there are more subtitles: “The Post-Post-Apocalyptical Allegory of Mother LaMadre and Her Son Golden Calf or: Zombies Will EAT Your Brain! An Epic Tragidramedy.”"
