Our Late Night and A Thought in Three Parts
“[Our Late Night is] a short play, but a savage one. ..Neurosis, panic and sexual surreality underlie Shawn’s startling vision of New Yorkers at play. ”—Guardian
Wallace Shawn’s OBIE Award-winning, never before published Our Late Night premiered in New York in 1975 under direction of André Gregory, and was revived in London in 1999 under direction of Caryl Churchill. A Thought in Three Parts—currently out of print—created an uproar with its 1977 London premiere, investigated by the vice squad for its allegedly pornographic content.
Wallace Shawn is a noted actor and writer. His politically charged and controversial plays include Aunt Dan and Lemon, The Designated Mourner, and The Fever.
