The existential crisis thoughtful people live through every day
Sam Hunter’s plays explore the existential crisis thoughtful people live through every day. His plays are quiet until they’re loud, devastating until they’re sneakily joyful, and simple until they’re suddenly complicated.
The Few, a new play by Hunter at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in the West Village, is set in the office of a small newspaper that caters to long haul truck drivers. It’s proprietor, Bryan (the moody, hunky Michael Laurence) disappeared four years ago and the play begins with his sudden return. Why he left, why he returned, where he went, and what he did are all unknown.
Lindsay chatted with Hunter about The Few and his other plays, including the forthcoming Pocatello and the award-winning The Whale. You can hear the interview on Maxamoo’s podcast and see The Few at Rattlestick through June 21 (it just extended so great seats are available later in the run).
