About this show

A hauntingly lyrical memory play, When the World Was Green is steeped in the elliptical, poetic style for which Sam Shepard is justly celebrated. Sketched out in just a handful of scenes is a world of sensual delight, of great journeys to distant lands, and exotic food "piled as high as a mountain, glistening in the sun." This play is a classic from Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaiken.
