About the play:
A divey bar in the Bronx. Danny at one table. Roberta at another. “Me, I’m twenty-nine and I cant stay the way I am for too fucking long” says Danny. And Roberta feels the same. Driven to the edge of endurance by alienation and self-loathing, these lonely strangers are ready to try anything to get out of their own heads. Described by the LA Times as “a foul-mouthed romantic fairy-tale with bloody knuckles,” Shanley’s masterpiece gives us a ringside view of the thoroughly damaged duo as they grapple and grope their way through one transformative night.
Action/Adventure is extremely happy to be trying on a new hat this spring and producing its first published play from an established playwright. While original, ensemble-driven comedy (such as serial hits Fall of The House and Captured by Aliens) has always been the company's bread & butter, Action/Adventure is expanding its artistic aspirations this spring to the producing of scripted works. This well-known, but rarely produced piece, John Patrick's Shanley's Apache Dance, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, is the first exciting step in that evolution.
