During the past 15 years Jon Tuttle has graced us with several fine plays. Add “The Sweet Abyss” to the list. The play that opened Friday night at Trustus Theatre is beautifully-written with fully fully-drawn characters and packed with ideas.
“The Sweet Abyss” supplies hearty laughs, dewy-eyed moments and delightfully complex medical terms. The play maintains a fine balance and tone that engages in a tight-rope act above a dangerous chasm of new-age philosophy and cheap laughs. It never falls in. The playwright and the audience are fortunate that the play is in the steady and capable hands of director Dewey Scott-Wiley or things could have gone very wrong.
