Quotes & Highlights

“Director John McNaughton controls the near-surreal tone with a straightforward touch that heightens the humor and grabs us by the throat. As for Landau and Williamson, their attuned chemistry is a pleasure to witness.” —Los Angeles Times
“A truly great theatrical experience.” —broadwayworld.com
“Enjoy – this kicked serious theatrical ass!” —curvewire.com

Description

The play revolves around the dilapidated lives of Danny and Roberta, two tortured strangers who meet by chance at a dive bar in the Bronx. Danny, an emotionally unstable, street brawling truck driver, and Roberta, a self-loathing, troubled woman, collide in a morbidly humorous, violent and vulgar fairy tale about a frightening and ultimately fascinating relationship.

Shanley describes this play as an Apache dance. Shanley dedicates the play to, “everyone in the Bronx who punched me or kissed me, and to everyone whom I punched or kissed.”

This play is not recommended for audience members younger than 15.
