Recent Tragic Events
by Craig Wright
February 4, 2005 through March 12, 2005
In the West Coast premiere of this stunning new comedy by Craig Wright (writer on HBO's Six Feet Under), Recent Tragic Events places the enormity of world tragedy in context - a dazzling, delirious context of uncanny blind dates, drinking games, and Joyce Carol Oates. Craig Wright frames 9/11 in a splendidly cracked rear view mirror, becoming a catalyst for examination of who or what is running our lives.
Do we really have a choice, or are we mere puppets espousing freedom?
