In Dialogue Series: Buena Vista
Profile Theatre rounds out a season of Sam Shepard featuring two contemporary plays grappling with themes of family, dysfunction, and love set in gritty Western landscapes. In Dialogue Series includes staged readings of Amy Claussen’s Hungry, Edith Freni’s Buena Vista, as well as Sam Shepard’s A Lie of the Mind.
What happens when you stick an estranged parent, their ex, their confused son, Noah, and his ex–girlfriend from hell into a snowed in cabin? Edith Freni’s Buena Vista sets to find out in a twisting plot chock full of dark humor, plenty of verbal sparring, and tension that you could cut with a knife set in the high altitude, scrappy mountain town Buena Vista.
