The script of Shepard's three-act drama about a desperate man trying to hold onto his wife and career is set against a backdrop of professional horse racing. Pulitzer-winner Shepard structures his latest exploration of new American archetypes as a detective story.

This duo offers a full-length play and a collection of 14 shorter dramatic works from various points in Shepard's career. As one of the best of the modern crop of American playwrights, Shepard belongs in all collections. With the current Broadway outing of his 1979 play Buried Child receiving multiple Tony Award nominations, interest in the playwright and actor should increase.
