JAW: Bad Family by Andrea Stolowitz

Portland Center Stage
July 16, 2009

Review by peanutduck

Semi-predictable dysfunctional (possibly due to a Wiccan curse) family comedy-drama that wraps up in an uplifting bow (the curse is reversed), with a sage immigrant guiding the wayward angry teen thrown in. Best moments are when characters (and script) break free from hyper-articulate self-awareness, e.g., during the energetic badminton game.
