The Late Henry Moss, July 12, 2008 ***1/2

The Late Henry Moss 
By Sam Shepard, Human Sacrifice Theatre
Chapel off Chapel, until July 27, 2008
Reviewer: Kate Herbert
Stars: 3 &1/2

Although not one of his masterpieces, this recent play incorporates many of Sam Shepard’s trademarks: gritty realism, violence, mystical elements, volatile brothers and a drunken father.

Two brothers (Mark Diaco, Lee Mason) are reunited in New Mexico over the body of their violent, estranged, alcoholic father (Bruce Kerr) and they must confront their past.

This fast-moving and compelling production is intelligently directed by David Myles and passionately performed.
