Simpatico: a Play in Three Acts by Sam Shepard
Book DescriptionSet within the netherworld of thoroughbred racing, this hair-raisingly funny new play by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of True West explores the classical themes of memory, loyalty, and restitution. Simpatico launches readers into regions where high society meets the low life, and where, as one of the main characters observes, " someone is cutting someone else's throat."
