About This Show

Richard Foreman’s new play, King Cowboy Rufus Rules the Universe, evokes a nightmare world in which an imitation George Bush–a wild bull in the world’s china shop–finds himself attacked by bears, babies and statues of the dead. Turning away from romance, he lunges toward the eroticized terror of an unknowable future.

Richard Foreman, multi-award winning playwright/director doesn’t make conventional plays. He stages intricately layered, provocative rituals which combine dance, opera, drama, absurdity, rock and sex and take audiences on a wild ride through the psyche. Foreman’s pieces twitch convulsively with eternal themes that echo within a multitude of bizarre circumstances.

Starring Juliana Francis, Jay Smith, and T. Ryder Smith.
