Lee Blessing's provocative piece travels down a dark and frightening road into the mind of a serial killer. First presented at La Jolla Playhouse, and subsequently presented as part of the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville. "…compelling theater…Blessing has a penchant (and a skill) for probing his chosen issues with intelligence and respect for their complexity, his dramatic style is clear and simple." —Variety. "With DOWN THE ROAD, Blessing again shows his superiority at presenting an intellectual yet emotional look at the various facets of a twisted, virtually unsolvable issue. And if a play's success is measured by how much it disturbs emotions and stimulates the discussion, DOWN THE ROAD ranks as a major achievement." —Variety. "It's a delicately textured, beautifully balanced morality play in the guise of a psychological drama. It is the most serious and intellectually rewarding play to have appeared this year." —LA Herald Examiner.
