The locals are disappearing, the militia is uprising, and the local carpenter is healing dead dogs. Something's coming.
Called "one of the most talented poets writing for the theatre right now," (Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com), Robert Attenweiler presents a brand new work written exclusively for The Barracuda Theatre Club. Attenweiler's most recent work ...And We All Wore Leather Pants, was recently published in Plays and Playwrights 2008.
The world seems very near the end for the Torrence sisters with Claire investigating a series of disappearances that may be linked with the second coming of Jesus Christ and Rose pressing her militia to undertake grand acts of domestic terrorism. Driven by Attenweiler's singularly dynamic language, Torrents blends the regional crime stories of the Cohen Brothers with the absurd viciousness of Martin McDonagh in this story about family, America and the loss of faith in both.
