Mae is an ironing spitfire with a thirst for knowledge. Lloyd is a desperate simpleton suffering from an undiagnosed illness. Both live in a rural shack that teeters on a promontory. When a barely literate Henry enters their lives, Mae finds a savior from the monotony of her meager existence and Lloyd finds an eternal adversary.
Salvage Vanguard Theater is ecstatic to present a work by one of its biggest influences, the legendary playwright Maria Irene Fornes.
“Salvage Vanguard Theater’s staging of Maria Irene Fornes’ Mud has plenty to compel our attention, most of it coming from the three gifted actors in the cast… Jenny Larson, Jeffery Mills, and Robert Pierson collectively raise the temperature onstage with firm, steady hands, degree by degree, such that we can feel the slow intensifying of the flame…”
