Kimberly Akimbo

2 Male, 3 Female

David Lindsay-Abaire Price: $9.99

Set in the wilds of suburban New Jersey, KIMBERLY AKIMBO is a hilarious and heart-rending play about a teenager with a rare condition causing her body to age faster than it should

When she and her family flee Secaucus under dubious circumstances, Kimberly is forced to reevaluate her life while contending with a hypochondriac mother, a rarely sober father, a scam-artist aunt, her own mortality and, most terrifying of all, the possibility of first love

"The Comedy of the Year. A haunting and hilarious new play. Mr. Lindsay-Abaire is an expert at tweaking, skewing and finally inverting established formulas

His plays tend to slide right out of predetermined pigeonholes. KIMBERLY AKIMBO is at once a shrewd satire, a black comedy and a heartbreaking study of how time wounds everyone" NY Times

"A breezy, foulmouthed, fleet-footed, warm-hearted comedy. There have been many dark comedies about dysfunctional families, but this is one of the funniest" L.A. Times
