The Klunch’s made it’s critically acclaimed debut with the DC premiere of this bitterly funny rumination on the struggle to forge real connections amidst the haze of America’s modern “service economy,” which seeks to enslave us all. Carla’s holidays take an unexpected turn when her mother’s zillionairess former employer, Doreen, shows up in the dead of night to announce the sudden passing of her husband. But tensions mount and sympathies fade as Carla is reminded that Doreen could, quite possibly, be the most annoying asshole on Earth.
