Happy Talk Reviews

Susan Sarandon has a gift for subtly layered performances. Marin Ireland is invaluable, playing with a heartbreaking effusiveness. Nico Santos is entertainingly flamboyant.
The New York Times
Terrific performances! Susan Sarandon and Marin Ireland work off each other beautifully. Sarandon is clearly having a blast. Nico Santos is a hoot!
The Hollywood Reporter
Marin Ireland is a ferocious performer.
New York Magazine

Summary

Happy Talk
By Jesse Eisenberg
Directed by Scott Elliott
with Marin Ireland, Tedra Millan, Daniel Oreskes, Nico Santos, Susan Sarandon

Lorraine (Susan Sarandon) is a saint of the suburbs. On top of trying to save her dying mother, miserable husband and estranged daughter, she’s starring as Bloody Mary in the Jewish Community Center production of South Pacific. When her mother’s home aide, Serbian immigrant Ljuba (Marin Ireland), asks for help finding a husband, Lorraine takes on her most challenging role to date: matchmaker. In Jesse Eisenberg’s hysterical and devastating play, Happy Talk, he reveals the absurd lengths people go to save themselves in the name of saving others.
