Like his previous play Miserable with an Ocean View, Damaged Furniture is an outrageously funny play. It will tickle your funny bone and make you root for these crazy dysfunctional Brooklynites.;

I can't really describe all of the idiosyncrasies that go on in this family, but I guarantee you they will keep you in "stitches" throughout.

A play as well performed and profoundly written as Howard Skora's newest, “Damaged Furniture,” deserves the highest of accolades. Rarely have I seen a family ‘dramedy' with characters this sharp or dialogue this funny.

Damaged Furniture offers a rip-roaring, adult look at expectations and challenges through the prism of a family from hell.

The show boasts quick-witted, funny dialogue and vivid multidimensional characters. At the same time, for all its glib charm and humor, the play is laced with an underlying melancholy, creating an atmosphere that's part sitcom, part piquant meditation on our difficult relationship with family. It's surprisingly wise and funny. - RECOMMENDED

His latest production, "Damaged Furniture," showcases his sublime sense of humor while mixing in family melodrama and just a taste of New York to make you feel as if you've visited NYC even though you haven't left Sherman Oaks.

This is a brilliant, laugh-out-loud comedy with gorgeously awful characters to love. Of course, every single actor is fantastic, I really couldn't single anyone out…no point. But the writing is the star here. Howard Skora has invented quite a kooky and ridiculous lot. All brimming with psychosis and bitterness and unspoken fears…hilarious. The humor is loud and frank and beautifully wrought by these impressive actors, their perfect timing and their delicious characters. Bravo to the director Jim Fall for giving the words and the actors the room they needed to be this good.

I highly recommend “Damaged Furniture” at The Whitefire Theatre.
