The Late Henry Moss

‘When you’re alone like this – just sitting here – just the two of you – you can start to make stuff up.’


Two brothers, Earl and Ray, travel to Bernalillo New Mexico upon the mysterious death of their estranged father, Henry. Over a bottle of bourbon and a box of old photographs, they try to reconcile their very different childhood memories.

Earl’s version of Henry’s death doesn’t add up; so Ray determines to find the truth. As Ray plays detective we encounter Henry’s bizarre collection of friends as the story of his last days is uncovered.

Family tensions are blown apart as Ray discovers more than he’d bargained for…

First written in 2000 by actor, director and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Sam Shepard and performed only once in London this play about a family and home is “classic Shepard country that is at once familiar and heartbreakingly new” – The San Francisco Chronicle
