THEATRE ASYLUM LOS ANGELES 1/8 to 1/25 2015


Virago is proud to produce the World Premiere of hot Bay Area playwright William Bivins' Ransom, Texas! In a small West Texas town, two men locked in the office of a factory battle for power using whatever they've got: manipulation, mind-games, lies, and brute force. This savage, emotionally compelling two man tour-de-force will blow your socks off.
