This was Kopit’s first play, written while he was still at Harvard.It was first staged off- EPUBBroadway starring Jo Van Fleet, then moved to Broadway and starred Hermione Gingold as Madame Rosepettle and Sam Waterston as Jonathan.How to describe it?Surreal come to mind, as does absurd.I suspect that both adjectives were used at one time or another for this work.What is it about?Hard to say.It’s kind of about a woman, Madame Rosepettle, who does her all to protect her son from the evils of the world.Her son, Johathan, was the issue of her marriage to her first and only love, though it turned out that it wasn’t really love after all.Jonathan was conceived on their wedding night.When he was born, she locked him away from the world – didn’t allow him to leave his room.It turns out though that it was to no avail.The world managed to sneak in and ruin Jonathan after all.Oh...When her husband died, Mrs. Rosepettle had him stuffed and kept in the closet as a reminder of all the things she had done wrong in dealing with the world.It was quite a reminder.The drama should have played well, but reading it you get the feeling that the author is trying too hard.Well, it was his first play after all.Kopit went on to write the award winning plays, “Indians,” and “Wings.”
