In David Rabe’s dark humor “Goose And Tomtom” we are allowed to witness two co-dependant wannabe wise guys struggle to navigate the blurred line between insanity and reality, hope and anguish, in their delusional existence as small-time jewel thieves.
Rabe's very wordy 1987 play is a tough one to render, mainly because
it's surreal or absurdist--or at best weird--and its dialogue is so
jumbled, ambiguous, and nonsensical that one can only take a wild stab
at what Rabe is trying to get at.
Accessibly Live Off-Line
The Sacred Fools Theater in Hollywood presents David Rabe's surreal black comedy, GOOSE AND TOM-TOM, a tale about a pair of two-bit hustles, a dame, a second dame "in storage", and a a load of jewels from a heist that has gone astray.
