Two one-act plays by Joyce Carol Oates

In Gulf War, an affluent young couple entertains an older couple for an evening of cocktails and politics during the Gulf War. But as the evening continues, the conversation take a bizarre and absurd tone.

In this evening of cocktails and dinner, a couple anxiously awaits the arrival of an ex-husband in Black. As the wine glasses are drained, the evening becomes dark and intense, revealing the true colors of the characters in this eerie love triangle.

Full-cast LA Theatre Works performances featuring Edward Asner, Stephanie Dunnam, Rif Hutton, Nan Martin, and Joe Spano.
