BLOOD ORANGE exposes the relationships simmering among the residents of a suburban cul-de-sac during the Orange County real-estate boom. Against a backdrop of sunburnt hills, Clinton and Ray-Ray and The Girl collide with their mothers, their rites of passage and each other. With slam-dance rhythm and punk dialogue, David Wiener's poetic and driven play explores the sensual and savage underbelly of the California hills and the cult of the American Man.
"[Wiener's] dialogue is honest, quick, and funny. The people he's created speak for themselves. And as the vehicle carrying them hurtles to its disturbing conclusion, you can't help but squirm." —Village Voice.
