Contrary to its title, this bubbly, whimsical comedy from the acclaimed playwright of The Clean House and Dead Man's Cell Phone will make you fall in love with love. Bank teller Tilly is consumed by a melancholy so exquisite that everyone she meets becomes infatuated with her: her tailor, her hairdresser and even her therapist succumb to the allure of her perpetual sadness. But when Tilly inexplicably discovers happiness, her joy wreaks havoc on the lives of her paramours. Get swept away by whimsy when Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center brings Sarah Ruhl's Melancholy Play to the stage.
