BUYER & CELLAR

WRITTEN BY JONATHAN TOLLINS • DIRECTED BY LEE HAMBY

STARRING BRADLEY AKERS

Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin farm. They are alone in the Mid-West: where nothing ever happens, and nothing has happened for years… that is, until they agree to put up Frank's old friend Haynes (who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium) and are subsequently visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat from hell. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a peaceful American household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously low half-life.

 

Described by writer Sam Shepard as 'a take-off on Republican fascism', this uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce was written just before the 2004 US Presidential election, and brings the gifts of a quintessentially American playwright to bear on our current American dilemma.
