Turning Bone Theatre // Action, by Sam Shepard
Dreams. Strange fish. Judy Garland. Dancing bears. And other mysteries! In this spare and darkly comic short play, the lights rise on four strangers trying to remember something important, something vital. It's the end of the world... maybe. Actions erupt in small explosions, timid attempts, and wild displays of emotion. A book is produced, but no one knows what page they are on. Turkeys are devoured, chairs are smashed, but no one can escape or find resolution.

In the spirit of Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco comes this rare and raw Sam Shepard gem, produced by newly-sprouted Santa Cruz company Turning Bone Theatre. TBT strives for visceral and vital physical theatre, that "entwines the real with more-than-real. We turn it a little to the side, make it strange..." - TBT website. The company includes Kenneth Chang, Kevin LaBrie, Olivia Lehrman, Neiry Rojo, and Austin Kottkamp. Directed by Dor Cosby Atkinson, former artistic director of Edge Theatre Ensemble of Seattle, whose productions have been described as "powerful", "sensual", "vast" and "inventive", with an "uncompromising aesthetic."

Sam Shepard has been called "the greatest American playwright of his generationthe most inventive in language and revolutionary in craft, (he) is the writer whose work most accurately maps the interior and exterior landscapes of his society."  New York Magazine.

Warning: Violence - (aka smashing objects and cutting up fish)
