The City Theatre Austin presents Wonder of the World
The City Theatre and Beyond August Productions kick off the 2021 fall theatre season with David Lindsay-Abaire’s Austin premiere comedy Wonder of the World.
Wonder of the World is one woman’s outrageous journey that plunges her deep into the unknown. Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her husband’s sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our heroine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life that’s passed her by.
It’s a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as she encounters ever more eccentric fellow travelers, including a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bungling, bickering private detectives, and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter, all which pushes her perilously close to the water’s edge in a trip she will never forget.
