Description

This latest work from award-winning playwright John Guare, author of House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separation, addresses ideas of history and memory, fame and ignominy, reason and insanity with his trademark Guare imagination. In a Fifth Avenue brownstone in 1880s New York, Ulysses S. Grant is penniless, dying of throat cancer, and attempting to finish his memoirs while he's cajoled and pestered by everyone from his wife and children to his publisher Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain) and, via his drugged hallucinations, the emperor of Japan. Although the memoirs are eventually completed, the audience is left questioning their accuracy and, ultimately, the authenticity of history itself.



Auteur

John Guare is the author of many plays, among them Six Degrees of Separation, winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award and the Olivier Best Play Award; and the House of Blue Leaves, winner of four Tony Awards, an Obie, and a New York Drama Critics Circle Award.
