About this show

In Shoppers Carried by Escalators Into the Flames, a new play from the author of Jesus' Son, the art of the dysfunctional family is taken to new depths of humor and despair. Addiction, fundamentalism, and yes, torched shopping centers, are integral to American life as seen through playwright Dennis Johnson's disturbingly hilarious lens. Will Patton (Remember the Titans) and a cast of nine appear in this remarkably affecting bleak comedy, directed by David Levine.
