Larry David

Published by Grove Press

Large Mixed Cast
An astonishing playwriting debut by Larry David, multiple Emmy-winning star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and co-creator of "Seinfeld"

This sidesplitting play presents Norman Drexel, a man in his fifties who is average in most respects

Except, that is, for his insatiable and hyperactive libido

The death of a loved one brings Norman and his family together and as they try to navigate the death, old acquaintances and unsettled arguments resurface with hilarious consequences

"Every word out of [Larry David's] mouth is funny . . . Instead of sticking to a conventionally constructed plot, this Fish swims from one comic situation to another" ~ Variety

"This is no four-person, politically correct, plotless amusement, like so many comedies today, but a large ensemble piece, a perfect second-act twist, and a solid last-minute kicker . . . David's humor is observational, questioning meaning and motives in the abstract" ~ Vulture

"Fish in the Dark may be new but its comic ingredients are classically aged . . . A night of huge, rolling laughs" ~ Time Out (4 stars)

Fish in the Dark premiered at the Cort Theatre on Broadway on March 5, 2015 starring Larry David as Norman
