If Conversation, the most recent play, seems the most placid, don't believe that age has mellowed Murphy. Judging from recent interviews and actions, the angry young man has merely become an angry old one. He made the papers in 2005 for hurling lamb curry at the director of the Gate Theater, and five years later he gave an interview in which he said: "There is a rage in me, which I think is a natural thing. It was in me when I was 24 or 25, scribbling with my stub of a pencil. And it's still there in everything I do." It's there even in the antiseptic environs of the Gerald W. Lynch Theater. And it is a brutal, forceful, rousing thing to see.
