Mr. Marmalade

A very black comedy from one of America's smartest young playwrights about four-year-old Lucy and her imaginary friend, a criminal gangster named Mr. Marmalade. Not suitable for children. "…exhilarating…alternately hilarious and heartbreaking…through the alchemy of Haidle's scintillating style." —The New Yorker. "Haidle's fertile imagination has produced a world in which…reality and fantasy collide and intertwine…[A] roller-coaster saga…MR. MARMALADE marks its author…as a name to watch in the future…Haidle has the courage of his convictions, which he has demonstrated in a mature and accomplished play…extraordinary…" —L. A. Times

Mr. Marmalade is intended for adult audiences

“Mr. Marmalade” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
