The New Group revives Sam Shepard's gripping drama.
Comments from published critics
‘‘"A production that connoisseurs of precision acting will be savoring for years to come. [Director Ethan Hawke]’s cast members leap so high you may feel the safe, solid earth receding beneath you."’’
‘‘"Harsh as the action may be, the execution is sublime. Hawke's production of A Lie of the Mind couldn't be more brutally honest."’’
‘‘"Under the direction of Ethan Hawke...Sam Shepard’s savage love ballad lands its gut punches of black anomie and blacker humor solidly in the breadbasket. In terms of theatrical alchemy, Hawke and his team have achieved a near-perfect union."’’
‘‘"Searing peformances. A stellar ensemble down the line."’’
