About The Show

Two young lovers struggle to reconcile their relationship in the face of disaster. As their individual coping mechanisms trigger each other’s despair the young couple lives out the play in a series of wild fantasies, transcending time and space in a violent and sexually charged tapestry of what was, and what is to be. Funny, brutal, and surprisingly touching, TENDER NAPALM is a gorgeously rendered and singular play.
