"It’s the turn of the 20th century and a world famous author and her grown children have returned to England after 18 years abroad," according to press notes. "But when her missing husband (who may also be the missing father) appears out of the blue, this fascinating troupe face love, family, money, sex, social and political issues, women’s rights—and the dangers of dentists in love. Shaw’s whimsical wit whirls us into a world where sweeping change has unexpected comic consequences."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
