Ages of the Moon
by Sam Shephard
directed by Stephen Vasse-Hansell
November 13 through December 6
Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sundays at 2:00 p.m.
A gruff, affecting and funny play by Sam Shepard. Byron and Ames are old friends, reunited after a desperate phone call. Over bourbon on ice, they sit, reflect and bicker until fifty years of love, friendship and rivalry are put to the test at the barrel of a gun. A powerful play about love, aging and the things we don't say to each other. At once raucously funny and heartbreakingly poetic, Ages of the Moon reaches down into our collective guts and touches the humanity, joy and pain we all experience.
"A poignant and honest continuation of themes that have always been present in the work of one of this country's most important dramatists, here reconsidered in the light and shadow of time passed." —NY Times.
