Theater: Killer's Head

Tuesday, June 3

Contemporary American playwright/actor Sam Shepard is known for penning disturbing dramas that imaginatively examine society's moral malaise and spiritual famine. His characters are lonely individuals robbed of their dreams and purpose, their troubled thoughts expressed via lengthy monologues that have become a trademark of Shepard's works. In his 1975 one-act, Killer's Head, the sole character is death row inmate Mazon, and his monologue is delivered while he's strapped to an electric chair. Dark Horse Theatre's Alice Ferrulo co-produces and codirects a local production with Zach Thompson, who takes on the role of Mazon. 8 p.m. Tues.-Thurs., June 3-5, The Studio@620, 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg, $15 general/$7 students and seniors, 727-895-6620,
