Involves two desperate families connected by the marriage of Jake and Beth who is left brain-damaged from a savage beating that Jake has given her. Jake sends his brother, Frankie, to Montana to see if she is dead or alive, but Beth's father shoots him in the leg and takes him prisoner. The rest of the story plays like a soap opera, but from the pen of Sam Shepard, are like none you'll see on television. Gut wrenching, emotionally draining, this adult content show is for those theatre patrons who enjoy shows with grit, violence and realism.
What Sam Shepard says: "This play needs music. Live music. Music with an American backbone. All I ask is that there be music. A Lie of the Mind is a play not so much to be understood, as it is a play to be felt."
