Goodman Theatre Presents World Premiere of Brett C. Leonard's The Long Red Road, February 13-March 14, 2010
***Philip Seymour Hoffman Makes His Goodman Directorial Debut***
In this raw, provocative world premiere, Sam attempts to drink away his past and exorcise his demons on an Indian reservation in South Dakota, where he has been trying to forget his role in a tragic accident involving his family. When a visitor from his past arrives on the reservation, Sam is forced to face his guilt and take a harrowing look at the man he has become. The Long Red Road is a searing play about the way one person's anguish can tear a family apart.
