Meet Jake, a descendant of the explorer William Clark, who has recently been diagnosed with Huntington’s disease and is searching for a way to use his degree in Post-Colonial Gender Studies to make a discernible contribution to society; and Chris, an aspiring writer and native of Lewiston. Against the backdrop of an increasingly corporatized and dehumanized American West, these two young men attempt to join together to forge ahead into an uncertain future. Leavened with humor and compassion, Clarkston juxtaposes day-to-day existence with historical allusions and larger themes of faith and doubt.

Written by 2014 MacArthur Foundation Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, one of the most provocative new voices in American theater, Clarkston continues DTC’s commitment to bringing the nation’s most exciting writers to Dallas.

Performances will take place in Studio Theatre at the Wyly Theatre.
