Sam Shepard’s Seduced was produced during my Masters in Ireland, 2012-2013.  This dark play is not one of Shepard’s better known pieces.  But the cast was able to find all sorts of goodies in the dark recesses of Henry Hackamore’s soul.

A dark comedy. Henry Hackamore the world’s richest most powerful man is dying. He is alone, paranoid, germaphobic with only his loyal nurse/bodyguard at his side. He keeps himself alive with the blood of other geniuses. He decides to bring two women from his past to his death bed in order to relive his former glory. However the world he has created starts to fall apart as his paranoia and madness grow. His memories become haunting visions and the three people surrounding  him become dangerous forces attempting to steal everything that he has built.
