NYC - The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work, brings you Sam Shepard's wacky "little legend about love" and for less than the price of a movie at just $12 per ticket. "The theatre is located just a stones throw from Studio 54 and offers the best theatre bang for your theatre buck." BroadwayGlobal.
In Shepard's darkly-comedic masterpiece, two estranged families are linked by a marriage both would rather forget - until a violent dispute forces them back together. What drives us hurt the people we love? And what stories do we tell ourselves to make it okay? Part myth, part life, part love story, this is a tale about growing up in the shadow of the American dream, about how our past generations shape our present lives, and about breaking out of the molds we inherit to find our way home.
