Critic Reviews

"The Oscar-nominated Alfred Molina and Fran Guinan...pour on the testosterone in this vigorous audio version, taped before an appreciative audience. Director Simonson keeps the pace brisk but orchestrates the tempo masterfully from hot to cold and back again. Charlotte Rae as the mother does a wonderful little star turn at the end." (AudioFile)

Engaging!

I kept laughing because the book is funny and the audio book does a great job in pulling you in the story as if you were really there.

A great production of a great play.

If you don't know Sam Shepard this is the perfect entry point. A funny, dark, absurd yet utterly believable tale of two brothers at war with each other. Big questions of what is America and what is art are derided and disected in a brilliant tour de force of dramatic writing.
