    King Cowboy Rufus Rules the Universe

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Richard Foreman, multi-award winning playwright / director, does not make normal plays, but instead stages dance-like, opera-like rituals of objectified trauma — twitching convulsively with eternal themes that repeat themselves no matter what the circumstances. in his new play "KING COWBOY RUFUS RULES THE UNIVERSE," an imitation George Bush — a wild bull raging inside the world's china shop — is attacked by innocent babies and worldly wise grizzly bears — turning away from sexual romance he is transformed by the alchemy of inevitable private catastrophe. Starring Juliana Francis, Jay Smith, and T. Ryder Smith
