Read & Download Fuddy Meers David Lindsay-Abaire ↠ 4 Download Fuddy Meers Read í 104 When Fuddy Meers opened at the Manhattan Theatre Club in the fall of 1999 it earned the kind of raves that a promising young playwright dreams about Writing in the New York Observer John Heilpern called him some kind of comic genius And after its sold out run at MTC the play moved downto. I am a massive fan of Lindsay Abaire s Pulitzer winning play Rabbit Hole and decided to read his earlier works Fuddy Meers is the third of his early plays that I ve read this year The plot focuses on a middle aged woman named Claire with psychogenic amnesia that is she wakes up each morning with no recollection of who she is who the people in her life are and what happened in her past This medical condition frames the structure of the entire play as the reader is left to uncover Claire s current and past lives at the same time she does We are then uickly introduced to a random set of characters in her life a man who claims to be her husband who may or may not have a dark past her 17 year old drug addict son a man who claims to be her brother who is half blind and half deaf her mother who speaks in barely discernible English because she recently had a stroke and an escaped convict with a puppet on one hand Like Claire we don t know who to trust what their motives are nor why they all seem to want Claire to come with them Overall this is my least favorite Lindsay Abaire play The characters are all absurdly contrived and it seemed like Lindsay Abaire was throwing every different attribute he could think of for his characters stroke victim crazy guy with a puppet amnesia secret histories etc I m fine with wholly weird plays but there was no connection with most of these attributes to the rest of the play they are random to be random There was also no depth or emotional core in this play I found this a very shallow read and not nearly as funny or witty as the other three plays by the author that I have read The play is set up so you want to know about Claire and her life but none of it worked for me and for most of it I simply didn t care about Claire or her past defeating the whole purpose of the play This one is a pass for me

Fuddy Meers is about a women named Claire Fiffle Claire has a form of amnesia The form she has makes it so every day when she wakes up she cannot remember anything from the past day At the start of the play she wakes up and her husband Richard Fiffle is standing over her He explains that she has amnesia and that every day she wakes up as a blank slate He also reveals that they have the same conversation all the time Then Richard goes to take a shower While he is doing this a man with a lisp comes to the window and convinces Claire to go with him by telling her that her husband wants to kill her The Limping Man as he is called in the play drives Claire to her mother s house her mother had just had a stroke so when she talked you could not understand what she was saying There Claire meets Millet and his puppet Hinky Dinky The puppet has a bad pottymouth as Claire says While all this is happening Richard sees that Claire is gone He and his son go to find her While they are trying to find her They run into a cop who tries to arrest them Richard who has been taking martial art classes disarms her and takes her gun He threatens the cop so she comes with them They continue driving with the cop Back at the house Claire is playing with Millet in the basement Claire s mother has been a pleasant backdrop to all of this Even though you cannot understand her she is funny and loving Claire s mom is actually the reason for the title Fuddy Meers She was talking to Claire about a carnival when she says Fuddy Meers meaning funny mirrors This is my favorite part At the end of the play Claire has remembered much of her past making it less confusing for me I read this in one sitting It is very scary and it kept me on my toes the whole time This was written in the form of a play so it was easier to read for me I recommend this to people who want a fast but challenging read Sam Kuntz
