Art "Crazy Train" Sligo (Slee-go), all-star wrestling legend, is about to retire. His two sons, his sister-in-law, his greatest fan, and a few unexpected guests gather on the eve of his final match for his last supper, but things just can't seem to stop going wrong in the Sligo home. "... Adam Rapp's brutal and funny play ... The play's aesthetic - realism with a dash of exaggerated dark humor, detailed observations of the pop-culture world delivered with energy and immediacy - are familiar from Mr Rapp's recent work in many forms. In the last few years alone they have included the play RED LIGHT WINTER, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, as well as a fine small film he wrote and directed, Winter Passing, and a witty coming-of-age novel, Year of Endless Sorrows. AMERICAN SLIGO ... bolsters his reputation as a writer ... as a writer he veers in a few unexpected directions, with new characters popping up, and others revealing surprising layers ..." -Caryn James, The New York Times "... AMERICAN SLIGO, his latest attack on the moral values and social conventions that define the American way of life ... Rapp hits his stride in the razor-cut pieces of dialogue ..." -Marilyn Stasio, Variety
