“At first David Michael Taylor’s reminiscences of growing up (and desperately trying to escape) an abusive home life in dreary Moundsville, West Virginia reads like a speedily-delivered lecture dotted with stand-up comedy punchlines. Taylor’s comedic timing and confessional style becomes seductively compelling, eventually drawing you in with his wry, ironic observations and sparks of mild sarcasm. He gets you laughing harder than you’d imagine at a guy who flirted with insanity.”
Mental illness was never so much fun as in MIXEDPERSONALITYDISORDERS, a world premiere solo show by David Michael Taylor. He’s had to live his life, but now you can enjoy it. From a childhood spent as the captive of his family of hillbilly maniacs through an adulthood derailed by an unexpected but unsurprising series of nervous breakdowns to a happy ending in a funeral home, MIXEDPERSONALITYDISORDERS is the feel-good feel-bad play of the year.
