The Show-Off has earned its reputation as one of a handful of classic American stage comedies that continue to "hold up" decades after being written. A vehicle for the great Helen Hayes in the late 1960's and a perennial favorite of regional theaters ever since, The Show-Off hasn't been given a major revival in NYC since 1992.
Notable for its masterly blending of comedy and drama and meticulous attention to the ordinary details of everyday life, The Show-Off revolves around a working class Irish family in North Philadelphia in the mid 1920's. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher and their three adult children are thrown into a state of turmoil when Amy, their middle child, brings home a preposterous suitor named Aubrey Piper. A compulsive liar with delusions of grandeur, Aubrey meets his match in Mrs Fisher (Annette O’Toole), the crusty, no-nonsense matriarch of the family. A battle of wits ensues and the outcome is a vindication (of sorts!) of the American con man.
