There is no world more intimate -- or more dangerous -- than that which exists between two people in love. Dramatic journeys into this territory are among the most powerful in theater history, from Strindberg's Dance of Death to Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But none are half as daring as Philip Ridley's mesmerizing Tender Napalm which dives headlong into a couple's imaginary world. The play's two characters are Man and Woman -- lovers who savagely fight for the upper hand in their relationship in the face of an unnamed tragedy. Never leaving their insular world, the young couple lives out a series of wild fantasies, transcending time and space in a violent and sexually charged tapestry of what was and what is to be.

Sarah Rule plays are always interesting. This one with a woman who gravitates to a lesbian cowboy who sang throughout rather than the childhood boyfriend whom she marries is an earlier one.
It was a challenge to understand what the cowboy was singing.
Still, the play is so much fun. I especially enjoyed the husband's tale as a museum guard of a Rothko painting on loan.
Quotes & Highlights
“Here as ever, Ruhl has a finger to her chin in poetic meditation, with the added attraction of a youthful yodel in her heart.” -Washington Post
“Daugherty, proving he’s a master at balancing quirk and well-intentioned story-telling, is able to show the dance that Mary is dancing – both literally and figuratively – in her relationships and in her own mind in a consistently interesting way. Overall, this artistic vision serves the piece well.” —Broadway World
“[Daugherty] seems to have found the exact mix of comedy and tragedy that best enhances the play’s effect … With this work, Alyssa Wilmoth establishes herself as a major Washington actor – the kind of performer whose appearance in a cast can serve as a stand-alone justification to see a play … Thomas and Dinolfo also acquit themselves well in difficult roles.” -DC Theatre Scene
