Attempts on Her Life

Attempts on Her Life (2002)

The West Coast premiere of Martin Crimp’s landmark piece in avant-garde theater was an enormous success, both accessible and ground-breaking. Attempts turns our definition of “play” on its head. Theater for those who think theater has nothing new to offer – Attempts invited the audience to engage as post-modern detectives, yet kept them laughing, and cringing at their laughter, throughout.

“Sharp and brilliantly staged … Thought-provoking and deeply satisfying.” - SF Gate (SF Chronicle on-line)
