ONE ACT FESTIVAL PREVIEWS – “Red Cross” & “Two Sisters”

ONE ACT FESTIVAL PREVIEW

Red Cross” a surreal comedy by Sam Shepard 

Set in a remote cabin, Red Cross dissects the infectious nature of personal fears: Carol is terrified her head might explode; Jim is convinced he is plagued by insects draining his life; and the maid is scared of drowning.  This Obie Award Winning play explores the vampire quality of language, the power it conveys and the treachery it entails.
