Hilarious professional political fulminator, stand-up comic, actor and playwright Lewis Black might tell you— or yell at you— that his charmingly vicious, or viciously funny, even sweet, two-act play One Slight Hitch is absolutely not a recent too-easy rom-com with a different adjective in the title. Black’s reliably sarcastic play, set in Reagan’s politically ripe-for-the-picking 1981, isn’t slight or insubstantial but an old-school style screwball farce with brains about family and love, with one-liners flying fast, even as the absurd if believable physical set-up— return of ex-boyfriend on daughter’s wedding day— gives Fullerton’s STAGES cast plenty to do while they deliver them.
