“Plantation!” is Funny but Uncomfortable

*** Recommended*** “Plantation!” was funny until it wasn’t. Although I laughed a lot at the absurd behavior of the Wright family, I also felt a twinge or two of discomfort. By the end of the play, I wasn’t laughing any more, having progressed to very uncomfortable. I guess I enjoyed “Plantation!” until I didn’t. 3 Spotlights
