'DENTITY CRISIS was written during Durang's years at Yale University. His characters' cries of anguish in a world too self-absorbed to listen or, quite frankly, to care, established the playwright's voice and style in many of his later, more developed plays.
SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU has been Durang's most successfully realized piece to date, both critically and commercially. In this play the pain is deeper, darker and more passionate than in any other of his works. Christopher Durang has managed the precarious act of juggling desperate conflict and danger with the humour of one who cannot cease to care. The result is farce of the highest calibre.
