American Premiere: Soho Rep, Summer 2009 season

Rambo Solo continues Nature Theater of Oklahoma’s investigation into transcription as epic theater. Zachary Oberzan’s exhaustive retelling of David Morrell’s First Blood unfurls along a vein of spectacular psychic charge. Simultaneously giving John Rambo’s life Homeric form, performing Oberzan’s own relationship to the book, and anticipating his planned solo remake of the movie, Rambo Solo obliterates distinctions between the ridiculous and the redemptive.
