"Among living American writers for the theater today, Wallace Shawn is among the most respected by his peers and championed by serious critics."--Don Shewey

"The play is bound to delve further into the world that Shawn began to explore so precipitously nearly thirty-five years ago: one filled with ideas, wherein the action is the domestication of cruelty."--"The New Yorker"

"Grasses of a Thousand Colors" is a poetic epic that tells the story of a scientist (Ben), his wife (Cerise), and his two mistresses (Robin and Rose), as they fend for their lives in a world much like ours, yet one savagely close to extinction. Due to the scientific manipulation of the world's crops, a destructive system for which Ben is partly responsible, there is very little nourishment left to be had, except for those most privileged and connected. Despite the dying off of most of the world, these characters manage to survive, at times tasting the good life, admiring the beauties of nature, feasting on animalistic sex, and finding love. The play raises issues of redemption, forgiveness, and responsibility as it recounts a somewhat passionate, erotic adventure story.

Wallace Shawn is the author of "Our Late Night" (winner of the OBIE Award for Best Play), "Marie and Bruce," "Aunt Dan and Lemon," "The Designated Mourner," "The Fever," and the screenplay for "My Dinner with Andre," in which he starred. "Grasses of a Thousand Colors," Shawn's first full-length play in ten years, will be produced in the United Kingdom and the United States in 2009. Shawn is a well-known film and television actor. He resides in New York City.
