Elaine May

Published by Samuel French Inc

6 Male 4 Female

Howard is another urban, Jewish, almost generic white male from Queens, until the merry foibles of life - a leaky faucet, a dirty cop and a broken shower handle - overwhelm and he takes to bed

The neurotically hysterical characters that surround him revere his rebellion in the skewed comic version of an urban-angst world that veteran humorist Elaine May has created

"The discomforting sourpuss humor that Ms. May is known for" ~ N.Y. Times
