Tender Napalm makes its Washington debut in a transfixing, intimate and savage exploration of love in the face of heartbreak.
A pair of young lovers creates a fantastical, often violent, world through an interweaving dialogue of increasing perplexity. At the heart of their fantasies lies an unimaginable tragedy that both bonds and breaks the two. Fused with raw energy, the couple blurs the distinction of truth and illusion in this battle-of-the-sexes wild ride.
Ultimately beautiful and richly moving, Tender Napalm is a complex and layered romance for the modern era.
