'Holy Laughter' uses humor effectively

To the editor:

The arts season in the Berkshires is no longer two months. Witness the production of "Holy Laughter" presented by WHAM at the St. Germain Stage. It uses humor to address the ubiquitous issue of community and its relationship with religious institutions.

I am afraid the usually perspicacious Jeffrey Borak missed the point, which is that the church is the glue that holds weirdly diverse people together in a community. I hope his review does not discourage playgoers. It is a wonderful play, well-acted and well-directed.
