THE STORY: George Noonan needs a vasectomy. As a flight attendant and the father of five girls, George turns a routine visit to his urologist into a psychotherapy session about life, the insignificance of the modern-day man and the vast difference between stewards and stewardesses.
“…it’s the work that tags playwright Jeff Daniels as an important American comic voice…” —Detroit News.

“…a minefield of a play that is ferociously written…bristles with satirical darts, mile-a-minute entrance-exits and madcap surrealism that never obscures this comedy’s deeply serious undertone…This is a playwright in love with ideas and ethics, a playwright who mates ideological fearlessness with a blooming gift for words and stagecraft.” —Ann Arbor News.
