Description - Grasses of a Thousand Colours by Wallace Shawn

Dogs eat dogs. Cats play with mice.

A semi mythological examination of nature, animals, men, and women. Strange dinners, strange parties sources of death and life.

Wallace Shawn's play Grasses of a Thousand Colours was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in May 2009.

'Lyrical, creepy and richly detailed... if you are the least bit prudish, then Grasses is not for you'
- The New York Times

'Cross the masturbatory frenzy of early Philip Roth with Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia and you'd still only find yourself on the starting blocks of Shawn's long and uniquely disquieting dramatic journey'
- Variety

'How to describe Wallace Shawn's extraordinary new play A dystopian fairytale A pseudo pornographic parable A modern morality play It is all these and more'
- Guardian

'Richly textured, original and wickedly amusing... Wallace Shawn is an underappreciated master among contemporary dramatists'
- Evening Standard
