The 80-minute show starts with the premiere of Just These Dinosaurs, a short film by McComas and Spencer Parks, adapted from Shepard's 1982 collection Motel Chronicles. Next, guitarist/vocalist Reilly Downes and bassist/vocalist Paul McComas perform a set of original "love-foolish" tunes, plus several haunting Western songs that Shepard's sister Sandy Rogers wrote for Robert Altman's 1985 Fool for Love feature film. Then comes McComas' propulsive two-person adaptation, co-directed by Downes, of Fool for Love, which garnered Shepard a 1983 Obie Award for Best New American Play.
