As for the near-success, Beth Danesco's The Revelation of Jenny to Her Parents, most of the credit goes to Chris Martin. He plays the Dad alongside Mari Dias as the Mom, with Julian Trilling as daughter Jenny. He is a hoot in this broad comedy, intensely and convincingly in parental agony on his knees, begging: "Please tell me you're on drugs!" after she has proudly told them her secret. No, she's not a lesbian; it's that they believe in science and she believes in Christian Science. Unfortunately, the opportunity to comically examine a serious conflict is not attempted, and the writing becomes nothing more than religious pamphleteering.
Three-and-a-half for 10. Not a good percentage for a fourth annual attempt.
