“Stunningly lean, taut and emotionally searing…[like] the swift, sharp impact of a blow from an ax.” —Chicago Sun-Times
Producing Ensemble Director’s Comments: The novel is one of my favorite pieces of literature, in part because I find its piercing look inside the human mind to be so closely related to what we explore in the theatre. This adaptation is a streamlined, one-act version that captures the haunting essence of the play in a fast-moving, three-person format.
