A Behanding in Spokane
by Texas State University
Nov. 06 - Nov. 09, 2014
Texas State University's Department of Theatre and Dance is proudly presenting the play A Behanding in Spokane Nov. 6-9. In Martin McDonagh's first American-set play, a man has been searching for his missing left hand for almost half a century. Enter two bickering lovebirds with a hand to sell, and a hotel clerk with an aversion to gunfire, and we're set for a darkly comic rollercoaster of love, hate, desperation and hope.
"On the surface it is a twisted black comedy that pulls no punches and revels in the offensive and obscene. But, at its core it is really a tall tale of a determined man and his desperate and horrific search to reclaim that which was taken from him," says director Daniel Anderson.
