About this show

BUKOWSKI from BEYOND brings the extraordinary writings and spirit of Charles Bukowski to the stage with 29 th Street Rep company member Steve Payne recreating his spell binding portrayal of this notorious writer for a visceral evening of poetry and prose. "Bukowski is played with acerbic intelligence and fond humor by Steve Payne" The New Yorker. Bukowski, one of America's best known contemporary writers, was a low-life drifter, prophet of the unemployed who didn't start writing until he was 35, after quitting his job at the post office. Paynes portrayal of Buk's characters are a paradoxical mix of cynicism and honor, brutality and pathos, failure and success. "Bukoski is played with acerbic intellegence and fond humor by Steve Payne." -The New Yorker
