Arlene Malinowski has collapsed! For this installment in Victory Gardens’ “Up Close & Personal” solo performance series, Arlene Malinowski details her ordeal with immobilizing depression. Naturally a clown, Malinowski has here assembled a dismal litany full of binges, breakdowns, and benzodiazepines. Back then, Arlene would sometimes do nothing all day but stare at her gloomy affect in mirrors. Her husband loved her, he stuck it out through everything, so why, late at night, would Arlene still toy with the idea of killing him, even drowning—Arlene, how could you?—his avatar in the Sims? The nadir comes on the fateful day when Arlene assumes a fetal position on the floor at a Jewel-Osco. Oh, Arlene Malinowski, we love you, get up! —Max Maller
