Sex, drugs, and the end of the world in 1969, at John DeLorean’s Malibu beach house. A magician, a corporate couple, a ravishing starlet, and Don Ankle, carpenter to the stars, await their host’s arrival. When he does finally arrive, violence over a poker game erupts, a cop comes to collect some (planted) cocaine, and the world softly explodes.
Travels with a Masked Man:
A solo piece based loosely on Hadden's recent book Conversations with a Masked Man: My Father, the CIA, and Me (Arcade, 2016). An ex-CIA officer ruminates darkly on the American Empire, the human animal, and himself; his grown son confronts him and a lifetime of unknowns. A play about deception, the game (espionage) and rough filial love.
