Why See Bullet For Adolf?

During the summer of 1983, in the sweltering heat of Houston, an unlikely friendship is formed when a couple of mid-western rubes with uncertain futures meet up with a slick New Yorker on the run from his past.

The disappearance of a WWII artifact sets off a chain of events that proves that nothing changes the present like a blast from the past. The characters that populate this hysterical, rapid-fire new comedy by real-life friends Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman are based on real people, though the events depicted are fiction and the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.

“Frankie and I worked construction together in Houston in the summer of 1983,” Harrelson explained. “The people we got to know that summer had a profound effect on us and we knew we had to write a play about them. The only problem was our real lives didn’t have much of a plot, so we started embellishing. Now it’s about seven-percent history and ninety-three-percent embroidery.”
