A vigilante group of betrayed husbands seek retribution in Farrow’s stinging exploration of betrayal, sex and failure.
Robert McQueen is a gigolo, offering sex to the wives of busy husbands – or, as he would have it, a businessman who offers a vital service to unfulfilled and sadly lonely women. But the three men who have just taken him hostage fail to see their wives’ infidelity in such a compassionate light: they’re going to take McQueen to pieces, and beat a confession out of him. What they hear will change their lives forever.
Rattlesnakes was first performed in 2001 at the Flatiron Playhouse, New York.
