Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This adventurous play by the author of Strange Snow thrilled audiences and critics Off Broadway and later at San Diego's Old Globe. Willy Rivers is a rock and roll star who is incredibly famous because he survived an assassination attempt during one of his concerts. His bush with death has made him question the meaning of it all, but he gets no help from the cynical and alienated characters in his life. This most unusual play is a tour de force for an actor. Willy Rivers performs several songs during the play (see the acting edition for details).
"Pulsatingly alive... an indictment of a glitz tranquilized culture that packages art, death and sex as equally meaningless commodities. N.Y. Times.
The Wreck on the 5:25 was first produced at the Circle in the Square Theater in New York January 10, 1962, as one of three plays grouped as "Plays for Bleecker Street".
