Dragon Productions is slated to stage “Wonderful World” through Sunday at the Dragon Theatre, 535 Alma St., Palo Alto.
The twisted comedy is about an apparently happy family, featuring brothers Max and Barry, on the brink of despair. Feeling slighted by Max and his girlfriend, Barry’s wife embarks on a scorched-earth policy of truth-telling. “World” probes the subterranean truths of an American family and ultimately affirms the mysterious and powerful bonds that hold a family together.
The play – written by Richard Dresser – is directed by Susannah Greenwood, a Palo Alto native making her directorial debut at Dragon. The cast features Jason Arias, Shareen Merriam, Carlye Pollack, ej Taylor and Kyle Wood.
Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $16-$30.
