The Pain and the Itch

The Pain and the Itch - Bruce Norris I saw so many brilliant plays in 2008 that I may be damning some with faint praise. In a year of other memories this might easily get 5 stars.

It's about Stuff White People Like people and it's hilarious. I have no idea whether the audience knew it was about them and laughed amused at their own hypocrisies or if they thought they were laughing at their neighbours.
