Written and performed by Moran, All the Rage will begin performances Jan. 19, 2013, toward a Jan. 30 opening night. Performances are scheduled through Feb. 24. Barrish, who directed Moran's Obie-winning 2004 solo play The Tricky Part, will helm the work.
Here's how it's billed: "What happens when a mild-mannered Manhattanite shows up at his father's Las Vegas funeral and ends up in a fight with his fuming stepmother? Or when he suddenly finds himself in a room translating the details of an asylum seeker's torture? In All the Rage, his new solo work, Martin Moran takes us on a quest from West of the Rockies to South of Johannesburg, unearthing the unexpected connections and human hilarities that arise as he attempts to resolve an ancient riddle: how is it that in one moment we might reach out in compassion and in the next…kill?"
The engagement is presented by piece by piece productions, Rising Phoenix Repertory and The Barrow Group.
