These three plays by Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Shepard are bold, explosive, and ultimately redemptive dramas propelled by family secrets and illuminated by a searching intelligence.
In The Late Henry Moss–which premiered in San Francisco, starring Sean Penn and Nick Nolte–two estranged brothers confront the past as they piece together the drunken fishing expedition that preceded their father’s death. In Eyes for Consuela, based on Octavio Paz’s classic story “The Blue Bouquet,” a vacationing American encounters a knife-toting Mexican bandit on a gruesome quest. And in When the World Was Green, cowritten with Joseph Chaikin, a journalist in search of her father interviews an old man who resolved a generations-old vendetta by murdering the wrong man. Together, these plays form a powerful trio from an enduring force in American theater.

From the Back Cover:

“One of the most original, prolific and gifted dramatists at work today.” –The New Yorker

“A journey through classic Shepard country that is at once familiar and heartbreakingly new.” –San Francisco Chronicle

“Shepard has many imitators, but no one to match his cunning psychological expressionism and comedic ruthlessness.” –The Village Voice

“Shepard’s work is a kind of verbal and visual jazz, which surprises you with its penetrating leaps of association and its startling voices.” –John Lahr, The New Yorker
