House of Yes
Mentally trapped in the Camelot days of the Kennedys, the strange foursome that makes up the family at the center of Wendy MacLeods The House of Yes is having a hard day. First off, theres a serious storm coming to the Virginia suburb where theyve forged their bizarre reality. Then theres that pesky fiancé who wants to come between the sister and brother, an incestuous set of twins who get a kick out of reenacting the Kennedy assassination. (Its easy, since the sister is a dead ringer for Jackie O.) Things get interesting when the family meets an outsider during a hurricane on Thanksgiving. Wendy MacLeods The House of Yes says that, for all the weirdness, the story is actually a dark comedy. Its actually very funny. Its very clever. Its very witty. This family doesnt think theres anything wrong with themselves. 8 p.m. today and Saturday. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $20.
Fri., Sept. 11, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 12, 8 p.m., 2009
