WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Sexual politics, literary adaptations, African-American and gay themes are spliced, diced and served with a side of lust. A famous Shakespearean courtship is re-imagined, Beowulf chats with his mum, a human body is negotiated, Clytemnestra rules the world, and the vicious nature of drinks and desire are explored in this evening of scenes culled from playwright Robert O'Hara's work over the past ten years. "Robert O'Hara's voice is unique and overflowing with theatrical invention." -- George C. Wolfe "Robert O'Hara employs a language of wicked wit, of deliberate and immensely provocative outrageousness ... He shatters the funereal hush that usually surrounds the representation of atrocity and holocaust, in the process waking his audience up." -- Tony Kushner
