Games Grown Ups Play

Trudi Jackson and Mark Rice-Oxley in Playing With Grown Ups.

Although Playing with Grown Ups isn't entirely successful as a play, it's refreshing to see a completely unsentimental look at motherhood (not surprisingly, it comes from a Brit). Another interesting cultural contrast: The teenage girl that one of the 40ish characters is dating is listed as 16 in the script; for the New York production, her age was upped to 17.
