and conflict, pulling from a wide

There There

Kristen Kosmas

A a wildly unpredictable text about

being the completely wrong person

in the totally wrong place at the

exact wrong time doing all the most

wrong things, written by one of

theater’s great poets of failure and

surprise. Christopher Walken, on

tour in Russia, mysteriously falls off

the ladder and is unable to perform.

Karen, who apparently proofread

the script once, is asked to go on

in Walken’s place. A precarious

bilingual performance duet ensues

between Karen and her Russian

interpreter, Leo. This volume

includes both the Russian and

the English text.
