WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Somebody remembers a lost lover. Somebody searches for some food. Somebody gets lost in the night.
Set over the course of one evening,
Nighthawks (An Odyssey) is an open performance text exploring urban alienation and city life under late capitalism. An Everyman figure wakes up from a troubled dream and wanders out to get some food. He finds his journey interrupted by a paranoid drug addict trying to get some sleep, an exhausted mother returning from an all-night job, and a young man stewing over a failed date.
