When Cass discovers a dirty little secret in her husband’s sweater drawer, it is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on.  It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter, all of which pushes her perilously close to the water’s edge.

“Hefty laughter. David Lindsay-Abaire’s WONDER OF THE WORLD is exceedingly whimsical and playfully wicked. Winning and genial. A top-drawer production.” —NY Times.

“Full frontal lunacy is on display. A most assuredly fresh and hilarious tragicomedy of marital discord run amok. Lindsay-Abaire’s flair for the absurd combines nicely with an ability to pull laughs out of any situation. Absolutely hysterical.” —Variety.

“Wild and crazy. David Lindsay-Abaire delights in the demented.” —Associated Press.
