Richard Maxwell has assembled twelve people to tell a story. The story concerns a young man searching for his father in the American landscape. Beneath gas stations and drive-ins, family routines, work schedules, small-town dreams and desires, Neutral Hero offers itself to the ancient stream of humanity.
Neutral Hero is theater. Undertaking the utterly impossible feat of portraying neutrality, Neutral Hero employs the fundamental properties- text, movement, and music, to continue to define what a new contract could mean between performers and audience.
Performers: Lakpa Bhutia, Janet Coleman, Keith Connolly, Alex Delinois, Bob Feldman, Jean Ann Garrish, Rosie Goldensohn, Paige Martin; James Moore; Philip Moore; Andie Springer; Andrew Weisell.
