Reunited with Playwright Megan Cohen at Berkeley Rep's Ground Floor.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
So excited that we can now shout it out from the rooftops and holler it to all corners! Megan Cohen, my dearest, darling Dumpling wife, and I are reuniting to dream forward her next piece of badassery Truest, at The Ground Floor at Berkeley Rep this June! This is all a science fact.
In Truest, Sam Shepard meets Thelma and Louise when we find two sisters in a kitchen. Smoking guns in hand, they’ve just slain the iconic brothers of fraternal drama True West. As these women pursue their own uniquely twisted American Dream in a landscape of canonical corpses, they dance an intricate psychological duet that leads us through a surreal terrain of wonder, danger, laughter, and yearning. A delightfully upsetting grapple by an emerging feminist playwright, Truest is about a pair of sisters on a brutal hunt in search of tenderness.
