Fuddy Meers is a play written by David Lindsay-Abaire chronicling a very special day of an amnesiac named Claire Fiffle who forgets the events of a day when she goes to sleep and wakes up on the next. This particular day, she wakes up being taken away by a man in a ski mask who brings her to her mother's house. From there, secrets are revealed in an over-the-top farce.

This play contains examples of:


  • Bittersweet Ending: Claire remembers all that happened before her condition until she falls asleep in the car at the very end.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: The condition that Claire has, wiping her memory clean every day. Interestingly enough, she can recall distant memories easily with a little help.
  • Never Mess with Granny: For a stroke victim who's well into her sixties, Gertie can hold her own pretty well. She fights off two escaped convicts with ease, and even manages to non-fatally stab one of them. She also has what may be the foulest mouth of any of the characters, but her aphasia manages to censor out any actual swear words.

How well does it match the trope?
