Summary

`A play that crawls into the most carefully protected corners of one's consciousness-gorgeous, frightening, stunningly poetic, wickedly funny, surprisingly voluptuous and poetic' Chicago Sun-Times

Valparaiso Summary

Valparaiso by Don DeLillo

In Valparaiso, a breathtaking play from Don DeLillo, a man sets out on what he imagines will be an ordinary business trip to Valparaiso, Indiana. It proves to be anything but run-of-the-mill, turning instead into a mock-heroic journey toward identity and transcendence.

Valparaiso is a funny, sharp and deeply satirical look at our information age. This is the way we talk to each other today. This is the way we tell each other things, in public, before listening millions, that we don't dare say privately. Nothing is allowed to be unseen. Nothing remains unread. And everything melts repeatedly into something else, as if driven by the finger on the TV remote. This is also a play that makes obsessive poetry out of the language of routine airline announcements and the flow of endless information.
