Adam Rapp is certainly this generation’s Sam Shephard; they share certain “American” obsessions. Rapp’s new play, American Sligo, is an excellent absurdist take on the American family. It could be Rapp’s Buried Child. A major asset of the production is Marylouise Burke, an American treasure in her own right. She fits right into Rapp’s ensemble of rep players: Guy Boyd, Michael Chernis, Matthew Stadelmann and the amazing Paul Sparks. I’m sure the play won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I thought American Sligo was a fresh, funny and dangerous new work from one of our best contemporary playwrights.
