"Christine Ebersole! She created and inhabited a role utterly, deeply and completely. It was mystical. You know the part where she almost leaves, you think she might actually do it? I did not breathe. The silence in the audience told you no one was breathing. Just extraordinary."
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.
