"Oscar-nominated Alfred Molina and Fran Guinan pour on the testosterone." (AudioFile)
If you don't know Sam Shepard this is the perfect entry point. A funny, dark, absurd yet utterly believable tale of two brothers at war with each other. Big questions of what is America and what is art are derided and disected in a brilliant tour de force of dramatic writing.
Terrific acting. Fast and fun play. Often laighed out loud nice twist in the second act
