Iconic theater artist Robert Wilson (Einstein on the Beach) directs Willem Dafoe and Mikhail Baryshnikov in a surreal marriage of abstract storytelling, pitch-black comedy, and vaudeville. In a production "by turns moving, cruel, witty, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny" (The Independent, UK), Dafoe and Baryshnikov portray multi-faceted characters inhabiting a disorienting world, forced to deal with an unexplained and unwanted houseguest. "Baryshnikov and Dafoe are superb, managing to wring the pathos out of each of their bizarre encounters" (Financial Times, London).
