The Late Henry Moss by Sam Shepard Presented by Unit 102 Actors
Henry Moss is dead. And no one knows what happened. As Earl and Ray Moss look back to their fathers past, building a story that fills in the gaps of his untimely death, it becomes apparent that memory can be a biased truth. What is true? What has been imagined? Touching on themes of family, alcoholism and, generational violence, The Late Henry Moss looks at how memory serves us and how we use it to serve the truths we need to survive. A surreal, dark comedy rooted in autobiographical references, Sam Shepard paints a world steeped in bourbon, stinking of decay and filled with mystery.
Directed by one of Unit 102s founding members, Scott Walker (Old Times; Lakeboat), this production will feature Mark Paci (Of Mice and Men, Unit 102; Love and Human Remains, Witchboy Theatre), David Lafontaine (American Buffalo, Unit 102; Designated Survivor, NBC), Matthew Gouveia (Killer Joe, Coal Mine Theatre; American Gods, Starz), Michael Eisner (Kill Your Parents in Viking Alberta, Blood Pact Theatre; The Englishmans Boy, CBC), Anthony Ulc (Jesus Hopped the A Train, Unit 102; Rookie Blue, ABC) and, Jennifer McEwen (In Arabia Wed all be Kings, Column 13 Actors Co.; Romeo and Juliet, The Classical Theatre Project).
