Oh dad, poor dad, mamma's hung you in the closet and I'm feelin' so sad -- Indians -- Wings.
Arthur Kopit burst onto the world theatrical scene right out of Harvard in 1959 with his international hit Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad, which announced Kopit's comic and architectural brilliance with the monstrous whirlwind, Madame Rosepettle. Indians used Buffalo Bill and the formal of a Wild West show to dramatize America's capacity for amnesia and the dangers of changing historical fact into fiction: a demonstration of denial which was the decade's most profound theatrical metaphor for the tragedy of Vietnam and America's floundering sense of itself. Wings extended that inquiry to personal tragedy, a hallucinatory poetic study of a stroke patient's loss of speech.
