The Amoralists, whose Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side enjoyed a sold-out run at P.S.122, proudly claim to produce work "of no moral judgment." Therefore, the low-class characters of Obie-winning writer-director Adam Rapp's play Ghosts in the Cottonwoods, about a dysfunctional family in rural Appalachia, should be a perfect fit. Rapp, who last directed Billy Crudup in his semiautobiographical play The Metal Children, sets the story on a stormy evening as a single mother and her hip-hop-loving younger son await the arrival of the eldest son, who's planning a prison break via an underground tunnel. But as they wait, they get some rather unexpected visitors. Chaos, of course, ensues.
Mondays, Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Nov. 11. Continues through Dec. 6, 2010
