About this show

A new full-length play about an aging novelist who has reached the end of words and is ready to be done with his work, but who finds that his words don't feel like ending and his work isn't done with him. On the day he announces his retirement, his fictions rise up against him and take over not only his work but his life. A multi-genre/multi-media fantasy on how your sausage-Art gets made, as an almost-stock living-room marriage comedy tears itself apart to become a 1970s detective-spy thriller in the "foreign country" of Bäckløtistaan, a combination of every Hollywood cliche there has ever been about the rest of the world. Nabokov meets The Firesign Theatre meets Mission: Impossible on the set of a George S. Kaufman play, if that's even possible.
