The critically acclaimed "Life During Wartime" draws as much from Dostoevsky as from Swift. "In the roughly five years since Keith Reddin began spending more time writing than acting, he has produced a steady stream of black comedies about the underground of corruption, political and moral, that lurks just beneath the slick sitcom surface of American life," wrote Frank Rich of the New York Times after the play's 1991 off-broadway opening. "'Life During Wartime' is an archetypal sample of its author's works."
