Description
INDIAN BLOOD is the story of an adolescent boy trying to stretch his wings in a large and traditional family. "A R Gurney's latest play, INDIAN BLOOD, is like a snow globe for the stage, in this case a memento of wintry Buffalo in the mid-1940s ... Written with delicacy and old-school craftsmanship, INDIAN BLOOD is a modest memory play that is endowed with a measure of emotional heft." -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times "In INDIAN BLOOD, his delightful and touching memory play, A R Gurney takes a break from his recent anti-Bush salvos (MRS FARNSWORTH, SCREENPLAY) and returns to his treasured hometown of Buffalo ... INDIAN BLOOD can be seen as a companion piece to Gurney's recent political works, for he feels as strongly about what he lost long ago on the shores of Lake Erie as what he now finds daily along the Potomac. Eulogizing the past is just one more way to take a slap at the present." -Robert Simonson, Time Out "INDIAN BLOOD is smart, diverting and very much worth seeing." -Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal "In his sweet and civilized memoir of a sixteen-year-old boy in rebellion against the stuffy values of his upper-middle-class family, prolific scribe A R Gurney deftly sidesteps the deathtrap of narcissism that trips up most coming-of-age plays." -Marilyn Stasio, Daily Variety "Much like his fellow American master Horton Foote's evocations of 1900s Texas towns - in tone and exaction, if not style - Gurney's expert accounts of genteel American life are compassionate plays. Lighter in emotional fabric than some of his stories, INDIAN BLOOD otherwise proves no exception to Gurney's excellent body of classy works." -Michael Sommers, The Star Ledger - from Amzon
