THE LAST PLOT IN REVENGE
Written by Brian Grace-Duff and directed by OBIE-Award-winner John Clancy, The Last Plot in Revenge presents a new twist on Brecht’s epic theater, invoking a cinematic setting and then pulling the audience back and forth over the line between gritty realism and self-reflexive melodrama. The soundtrack, composed and performed by Peter Gaffney, was inspired by contemporary folk and cinematic Western music, with darkly Victorian waltzes and melodramatic songs. It continues without breaks throughout the play, even during spoken dialogue and fight sequences, underscoring the action or offsetting the realism with music from distant moods and genres.
