This comedy is a fine example of what the great German playwright, Bertolt Brecht, called “culinary theatre.” Like a good meal, it is enjoyable, easily digested, undisturbing, and needs no analysis. As was the case with last season’s Red Velvet Cake War, it is authored by a team: in this case, a duo named Osborne and Eppler, who have also given the world Southern Fried Nuptials. The vein of lovable eccentrics and quirky stereotypes being mined doesn’t run deep, but it is exceedingly wide. I suppose that a few months of residence in a small New England village, or a New York ethnic enclave, might yield a similar collection of oddities, but so far the American South is the true mother lode.
