About the Play
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1983, this American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape.  Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script.  Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Saul Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in.  He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale.

“It’s clear, funny, naturalistic. It’s also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic.  If that sounds contradictory, you’re on to one aspect of Shepard’s winning genius; the ability to make you think you’re watching one thing while at the same time he’s presenting another.” – San Francisco Chronicle

This cast includes Laurie Brearley, Jim Michalec, Joshua Sedelmeyer, and Jeff Tagliaferro.  The director is Bernie Sheredy.
