"Outstanding Work" - NJ Stage
"Licato understands Shepard... [He] has gotten the talented cast all onto the same page. They feel the rhythms of Shepard’s language, they dare to jump from word to word, sentence to sentence without a net."

"I'm going into crime. It's the only thing that pays these days"
Meet the wildly unpredictable Tate family, financially ruined, their farm is in chaos and the debt collectors are getting increasingly ruthless. The story whirlwinds with dark comedy and captivating twists as each family member goes to fantastic extremes grappling with a “curse” that continues to resonate today. Wildly theatrical, the play is filled with surreal imagery, vivid poetry, and crackling comedy. Pulitzer Prize-winner San Shepard's masterful vision of the Last Stand
