Large Animal Games

Co-world Premiere
Written by Steve Yockey
Directed by Melissa Hillman
Nov 5–Dec 12, 2009

Impact introduced Atlanta-based playwright Steve Yockey to the Bay Area with his absurdist comedy Cartoon (named one of the top ten plays of the year by theEast Bay Express) and the experimental dreamscape Sleepy. He now returns to Impact with Large Animal Games, an incisive look at relationships, big-game hunting, and intimate apparel, all seen through the delightfully cockeyed lens of Steve Yockey, one of the new generation of playwrights who should be on your must-see list.

“Light-hearted…subtly related themes of animal-lust, competition, self-image and possession cleverly at work” with “well-honed, true-to-life-repartee.”
SF Bay Guardian

“Compelling…desire gets carnal in Large Animal Games.
East Bay Express

“An engaging writer, particularly skillful in depicting the poignant comedy of lovers’ misunderstandings.”
SF Chronicle
