An explosive true story of lust, lies and obsession, talhotblond brings Emmy-winning journalist Barbara Schroeder's feature documentary to the stage in a chilling drama. A married man becomes involved in an online love triangle with an 18-year-old girl going by the screen name talhotblond. But what the man doesn't know about her eventually leads to tragedy. In this cautionary tale for our times, nothing is what it seems. Kathrine Bates, author of the long-running Los Angeles favorite The Manor, adapts this shocking and timely story. Learn More

Since my parents were both from the Lonesome West, I am disposed to laugh at and enjoy McDonagh's plays, four of which I've seen. My objection to them is that he always seems to push just a bit too long and too far, even with this one. We get it. That said, I thought the actors did a good job portraying the oafish -- nay, brutish -- brothers, once I became attuned to their brogues. I do not think the character of Father Welsh (Walsh?) is accurately defined in your blurb. Colin Walshe (Welsh? Walsh?) played him well enough, but this whiskey priest's final choice did not convince me.
