Genre: Comedy, Drama

Weird! Wild! Wonderful! Welcome to the world of Sam Shepard

In the Obie Award-winning play "Action", four characters search for purpose in a foreign world that is somehow strangely familiar to them. As they try to "act out" a normal life together, their true nature reveals itself, with surprising and sometimes disturbing results.

"Cowboys #2", a rewrite of Sam Shepard's lost first play, tells the story of two young men who create a world for themselves in a void where the only limit is the extent of their imagination. That world begins to dissolve, as an impending external force works to separate and destroy them. As they struggle to survive, they find that force may not be quite so external.

Lastly, in "Chicago", another Obie Award winner, what do you do when your wife is leaving you and the world as you know it is quickly falling apart? You take a bath, of course! Join our hero, Stu, as he does just that in an attempt to cope with his loss, and in doing so, may just save the fate of mankind!

In an experience harkening back to the early days of Café La Mama and Theatre Genesis, these wickedly absurd and surprisingly poignant gems from the Shepard tome is sure to leave an indelible impression on your mind.
