Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Shepard's latest play is an uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce that brings the gifts of a quintessentially American playwright to bear on the current American dilemma.

Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank's old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they're visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat from hell. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously long half life.

Review:

"Startling.... Apocalyptic.... A confident and unsettling scenario of surreal doom." -The New Yorker

"A robust new farce that shows Mr. Shepard's gift for finding deadpan surrealism in bucolic speech." -The New York Times

"Deliriously entertaining and deeply scary.... A shivering work of existential mystery." -Newsday
