The Late Henry Moss is “a journey through classic Shepard country . . . at once familiar and heartbreakingly new. The play . . . a flashback-driven mystery that uncovers the circumstances and emotional heat of Henry Moss’ death . . .rises, in a transfixing third-act encounter with death itself, to a rare state of theatrical grace. The playwright reaches uncharted emotional depths in his recurring theme of scarred and haunted families in a mythically vanquished American West.”
Two antagonistic brothers, Ray and Earl, are brought together after their father, Henry Moss, is found dead in his seedy New Mexico home. Henry was a harassing, arrogant drunk, and his sons have inherited his worst qualities. Roy is determined to uncover the mysterious circumstances of Henry’s death. In three acts, the story of the father’s last days unfolds in flashbacks.
