Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 2/9/2014

    " Sometimes I suspect that all of Sam Shepard's characters are really different aspects of his own personality. His works depict a distinctly American psyche in constant battle with itself, the open frontier, the anonymous landscape, the never-ending road, the random people along the way and the broken families they left behind. I read somewhere that he never flies because it's unnatural, humans shouldn't leave the ground or something along those lines. Interesting. "

    " Great writing -- I'd love to see this on stage some day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaysy | 1/31/2014

    " Trying to read lots and lots of plays this summer. This was a GREAT start. It's famous for a reason - the way Shepard starts out with a very down to earth scenario and then slowly skews it so that by the end its insaaaane is so fun to read. I only wish he wrote better parts for women. That's the only reason why I still prefer Fool For Love over this. But, it was a great start to my play reading summer! "

    " Woo! This play is great! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack | 1/16/2014

    " I left this wondering whether it was more than it seems. While I enjoyed reading the play I couldn't quite resolve my expectations with the addition of Hollywood elements to the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna | 1/13/2014

    " Like nothing I've ever read before. A great play about two brothers with a small appearance of a number of toasters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wade | 1/11/2014

    " Saw Sinise and Malkovich act this one out. Really cool idea for a play. Most think California and Hollywood are the same place, but goes back east a bit, and CA gets strange. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/31/2013

    " Very powerful play. Mostly centered around two characters in one setting. Great for only 9 scenes. I would love to see this performed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 8/7/2012

    " Sam Shepard would belong in the American Playwright Hall of Fame, if there was one (Is there?), even if this was the only play he'd ever written (Thank the heavens that it isn't). This play should be read by everyone in love with theater or in love with a great story. "

    " Oddly put together. One walks away wondering what it was truly about. The characters are fairly interesting, and there is certainly some humor to keep you interested. No idea what the point is, though. "
