This Winner of the 1986 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play weaves reality and myth into a tragicomedy told in Shepard’s affectionate style. Set in the American West, two families are united by violence, and as further harm and disorder ensues, love seeps up through the cracks, leaving each character to seek their own path to forgiveness and redemption.
