The Fatal Weakness by George Kelly
In keeping with their mission of “bringing worthy but neglected plays back to the stage,” the not-for-profit Mint Theater Company presents The Fatal Weakness by Pulitzer Prize-winner George Kelly (uncle of Grace.)
When initially performed in 1946, the play received a tepid response in part because as The New York Times noted at the time, The Fatal Weakness was neither a “capricious comedy [nor a] psychological drama.”
The current production suffers from the same duality (in addition to being twenty minutes too long.) But this story of a married suburban woman faced with her husband’s infidelity is fine traditional theater.
