The God of Hell by Sam Shepard – Cloverdale Performing Arts Center – An uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce that brings the gifts of a quintessentially American playwright to bear on the current American dilemma. Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin Farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank’s old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they’re visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American Household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously low half life.

Recommended for 18+ due to adult themes and content.

Directed by Athena Gundlach
