Signature Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Sam Shepard's new drama.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Signature Theatre’s world premiere is capably acted and nicely designed under Daniel Aukin’s direction.’’
‘‘…For Shepard aficionados, “Heartless” offers a fascinating focus on a figure that this restlessly imaginative author—in contrast to other great American playwrights, like Tennessee Williams and Eugene O’Neill— usually doesn’t pay much attention to: good old long-suffering, child-shaping, hearth-keeping Mom.’’
‘‘There's something dark and alluring about the tapestry Shepard weaves.’’
