Read Synopsis

A daring collaboration with musicians Roy Nathanson and Marc Ribot, The Nature of Things forges a new theatrical form, a unique fusion of language and musical composition-a series of stories, songs, reveries and musings about sex, relationships, childhood and the letting go of it, power dressing and birds.
