The Catastrophic Theatre introduces Houston audiences to a fresh voice in American theater with the world premiere production of The Blackest Shore by Mark Schultz.
Stuart, 16, is making a movie: Graphic violence, extreme sex, the walking dead. Of course it's also a love story. And it's all true. In fact, it's more horribly true than anyone, even Stuart, can rightly comprehend. When Stuart begins to display increasingly troubling behavior, our sympathies are torn between a son and a father — both crippled by self-loathing — and each of the lives they touch as they try to negotiate the impossible circumstances of a mysterious, horrific episode from Stuart's youth.
