Theatre in the Round offers up Sam Shepard's play about a millionaire horse breeder and a southern California barfly. The two are old friends, and a 15-year-old scam they pulled together threatens to come back to haunt them. It's got the standard Shepard intensity and humor, as well as that peculiar sense of dead-end impossibility that his best works evoke. The theater also comes in for kudos for running things without a visible hitch after August storm damage to its building (this is the second show of the season), keeping the lights on in one of the Twin Cities' most venerable venues.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Oct. 12. Continues through Nov. 4, 2007
