What’s Wrong With This Picture
by Donald Margulies
A family comedy by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Dinner with Friends, What’s Wrong with this Picture? is the story of mournful dry-cleaner Mort, whose wife, Shirley, recently died after choking on a tough piece of moo shoo pork. At the end of Shiva, Mort and his teen-aged son Artie are finally left alone, but then the doorbell rings. The two men are faced with an unimaginable surprise that upends their grief and offers everything they could have hoped for. Or does it?
L.A. Weekly writes: “Margulies skillfully tosses us back and forth between hilarity and sentiment, all the while never leaving gaps of logic in this most illogical situation.”
