Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England
"Dean Wreen is not having a good week. Her college is in dire financial straits and a plan to close its tiny, all-but-forgotten natural history museum is sending unexpected shock waves across campus and out into the local community. At home, her ex-lover, Greer, is staying with her—sending shock waves of a different sort through her relationship with her current (and much younger) girlfriend, Andromeda. Town-gown relations are in tatters! The local newspaper is erupting in protest! Even the awful, historically inaccurate dioramas in the museum have started mouthing off! A screwball sex comedy about the perils of monogamy, certainty, and academic administration."
Yep, sounds pretty Vergey! Madeleine George's award-winning script is sharp, clever and imaginative. It's also quite sweet, in a guarded, sarcastic way.
Recommended for ages 17+ due to adult themes and language.
