“[A] savage love ballad...of black anomie and blacker humor.” — New York Theatre

From Pulitzer Prize-winner Sam Shepard (Buried Child) comes a searing examination of family relationships and the illusory nature of redemptive love. Two families united by the marriage of their children are ripped apart when a man violently beats his wife and leaves her for dead. The long road to healing serves as a vehicle for a deep, haunting and darkly humorous exploration of love and loss in the American landscape. Winner of the 1986 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, A Lie of the Mind features Equity guests Sheila Gordon, Bernadette Nason and Rod Porter (The West Wing).
