One of the plays that first announced Sam Shepard as an original voice in American theater, "Tooth of Crime "is his thrillingly innovative rock drama, published here in a revised edition that is as fresh and provocative as the original was more than thirty years ago.
An aging rock star in a world in which entertainment and street warfare go hand in hand, Hoss must defend himself against Crow, a newcomer who battles him for fame. Combining musical styles and intense dialogue in an unconventional musical-fantasy, "Tooth of Crime "riffs brilliantly on rising stars and fading legends, and rock lived and died for.
