Synopsis

"A born storyteller with perfect pitch."—<i>The New York Times</i>

"Greatly and bilaterally talented... spiky, stinging, caustic without cauterizing.

And funny."—<i>New York</i>

One of America's premier performers and most innovative and provocative artists offers his two newest plays: <i>Skunkweed</i> details the culture clash between a Los Angeles screenwriter and a working-class girl and her rural Florida clan in a hotel room, and <i>1+1</i> explores desire, greed, and responsibility to others through the lives of an aspiring actress, assistant restaurant manager, and a photographer.

About the characters in <i>1+1</i>, Eric Bogosian recently stated, "Bri, Phil, and Carl are based on people I've found intensely interesting my whole life: a good-looking hustler, an ambitious pretty girl, and a 'good guy' who always seems to finish last....

The story is a parable.

All my plays are.

My plays are not expositions of a specific time and place.

Rather, I try to find a way to set them so that the audience can immerse itself in a situation.

I don't have answers.

I have questions."
