BWW Review: ONE SLIGHT HITCH Courts The 80's in Austin Texas
by Amy Bradley - May 12, 2016

Making it's regional debut in Austin TX, Paradox Players delights Austinites with ONE SLIGHT HITCH. Performed at the quaint and appropriate location of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin at Howson Hall Theater, Bethke Stage, director Matthew Burnett executes this patronizing patriarchy prancing about the stage. Begging the audience to remember what their living room looked like in the 80's -this farce, written by the funny man himself Lewis Black, delivers on comic diversity as it toggles between with laugh out loud jokes and sophisticatedly written puns about the culture and atmosphere surrounding the era of mall-rats. It's the summer of 1981 - and the conservative Colemans, who are naturally from Cincinnati, are preparing for their daughter Courtney's wedding. Conveniently located in their backyard, Delia (played by Mary Kennelly) runs around madly with a clipboard making sure all details have been accounted for and that nothing ruins this very special day! Alas, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. In the Reagan era of a picture-perfect family, when the internet had not yet given us knowledge of just about everything, we watch as the day unravels into the unexpected comedy Lewis Black intended.
