Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival presents “Sam Shepard’s most personal American drama,” set in the gritty American West. The story alternates between two families after severe spousal abuse alters all their lives, culminating in a collision at an isolated cabin. “By turns aching and hilarious — and always as lyrical as its accompanying [live] country music.”

A Lie of the Mind may be its author’s most romantic play. However bleak and chilly its terrain — some of it unfolds, in more ways than one, in blizzard — no character, alive or dead, is beyond redemption. There is always hope, as Mr. Shepard’s closing metaphor has it, for a miraculous ”fire in the snow.” And the work’s buoyancy doesn’t end there. A Lie of the Mind is the unmistakable expression of a major writer nearing the height of his powers. — Frank Rich, NY Times
Mr. Shepard’s richest and most penetrating play, a 20th-century masterwork of a family portrait to be compared with Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Harold Pinter’s Homecoming. — Ben Brantley, NY Times
