Three darkly humorous plays that fail to answer life’s big questions. Ethan Coen of the Coen Brothers, the duo behind such iconic films as Raising Arizona, Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, and recently True Grit, adds playwriting to his impressive resume in the form of three hysterical and disturbing plays that blend traditional Coen Brothers off-kilter humor, with other theatre and film influences such as Beckett, Abbot, Costello, Sartre and Pinter. The theme tying the three together is hell—both on earth and in the hereafter.
