THE House Of Yes is a fantastical, new cult classic for our modern times. A dark, comedic theatrical drama about The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assassination, shut in as a Thanksgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving at the head of the storm’s eye are Jackie-O’s twin brother, Marty and his fiancee Lesly. This ruins everything. Marty’s engagement is a threat to the well-being of this family and a greater threat to Jackie-O, who has always wanted her twin brother for herself. Fine by their mother, who’s still lamenting her husband’s desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately yearns for Lesly. The resulting battle becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals’ somewhat-poetic insanity and Lesly’s plebeian pragmatism.
The House of Yes exhibits an exaggerated scenario of a family who are so disconnected from the rest of society, that they live to exist only within the confines of their home. The ramifications are staggering. The House of Yes is a soberingly relevant statement on the direction our society has taken. Entitlement is becoming a new epidemic. Exceptions are more common than adherence. How soon before “Affluenza” runs Rampant?
