Known for upending theatrical conventions and chronicling that which is forgotten or unimportant, award-winning writer-director Richard Maxwell explores violence in this daring new work in which physical exchanges take a front seat with the text. A “lobby-citadel” is the setting for his latest theatrical production, where guards attempt to secure a vulnerable area against unidentified intruders. Confusion and conflict, community and containment erupt and become intertwined, as the heart is traced, tracked, and followed to a heretofore unknown place—one that is, for the better or for worse, distinctly American.
