Item description for The Deatherians (Green Integer) by John O'Keefe...

In Amsterdam, the evil Dr. Krator-better known as "Dr. Death"-plots how to bring more patients into his clinic for euthanasia, while others involve themselves deeply in Amsterdam's notorious porno activities. O'Keefe's play is a dark satire of the late-twentieth--century -destruction, a world obsessed with death and degradation.

Among his many plays are Jimmy Beam, Ghosts, All Night Long, and, most recently, People Like Us, which received critical acclaim in Los Angeles.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Deatherians (Green Integer)?

The most shocking play since Philosophy in the Bedroom  Feb 10, 2004
For 30 years or so, John O'Keefe has been the wild man of San Francisco theater--writing extraordinary plays that are true to his own vision without pandering to the middle brow tastes of most of the works of American regional theater. There is no one to compare him to in this country: his work retains the authentic avant-garde spirit of anarchy, blasphemy, and profanity that Alfred Jarry introduced a century ago (and which has been so debased and commercialized in the past decades) while possessing Joyean flights of language. Even his most recent plays, set around World War II and surprisingly controlled for works by O'Keefe, are actually deeply subversive in our post-9/11 era.

The Deatherians is one of O'Keefe's greatest works--and certainly his most shocking. An antic tale of sex and death set in Amsterdam's red light district, it defies easy summarization and the themes that tumble out of its richly profane language are countless: American crassness, science fiction, commercialism, technology, marriage, eroticism, love, and so on and so on. And it's a musical! To use a popular piece of post-modern cant, this is one of the most truly TRANSGRESSIVE works of our time. If you're serious about your transgressiveness and not just playacting in your tattoos and piercings, read this book.
