",A born storyteller with perfect pitch.",The New York Times ",Greatly and bilaterally talented . . . spiky, stinging, caustic without cauterizing. And funny.",New York One of America's premier performers and most innovative and provocative artists offers his two newest plays: Skunkweed details the culture clash between a Los Angeles screenwriter and a working-class girl and her rural Florida clan in a hotel room, and 1+1 explores desire, greed, and responsibility to others through the lives of an aspiring actress, assistant restaurant manager, and a photographer. About the characters in 1+1, Eric Bogosian recently stated, ",Bri, Phil, and Carl are based on people I've found intensely interesting my whole life: a good-looking hustler, an ambitious pretty girl, and a 'good guy' who always seems to finish last. . . . The story is a parable. All my plays are. My plays are not expositions of a specific time and place. Rather, I try to find a way to set them so that the audience can immerse itself in a situation. I don't have answers. I have questions.", Eric Bogosian is a writer and actor who has authored five full-length plays and created six full-length solos for himself, including Talk Radio, subUrbia, Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Pounding Nails in the Floor with My Forehead, and Drinking in America. He is the recipient of three OBIE Awards and a Drama Desk Award, and has toured throughout the United States and Europe.
