About Baby with the Bathwater

Eclipse Theatre Company opens the 2019 Christopher Durang Season with his bitingly satiric black comedy, Baby With The Bathwater.

As the play begins Helen and John gaze proudly at their new offspring, a bit disappointed that it doesn't speak English and too polite to check its sex. So they decide that the child is a girl and name it Daisy—which leads to all manner of future emotional turmoil when it turns out that Daisy is actually a boy. Thereafter, in a series of wildly hilarious scenes, the saga of Daisy's struggle to establish his identity continues, despite his parents' growing obliviousness. In the end, the play comes full circles as the former Daisy and his young bride fondly regard their own baby—forgiving of the past but determined not to repeat its calamitous mistakes.
