Adam Rapp says that when he was working on his chilling, compulsively readable young adult novel 33 SNOWFISH, he was haunted by several questions.

Through much of his new problematic comedy-drama, American Sligo, Adam Rapp, one of the more prominent figures among the current crop of Off- and Off-Off-Broadway writers, seems to be doing Sam Shepard-lite. The mood is not as surreal or dense as in Shepard's plays, and you wait a long while before Shepard-style violence kicks in, but the bedeviled, off-center people and the family dysfunctions have a familiar feel. The story involves Art "Crazy Train" Sligo (Guy Boyd), a legendary professional wrestler facing the match that will mark his retirement.
