Before he gained fame as the bartender on Cheers and went on to garner Academy Award nominations for the films The Messenger and The People vs. Larry Flynt, Woody Harrelson worked construction in Houston with pal Frankie Hyman. Together, they bring their experiences to life in the new play Bullet for Adolf, albeit with a bit of exaggeration. “The people we got to know that summer had a profound effect on us and we knew we had to write a play about them,” says Harrelson. “The only problem was our real lives didn’t have much of a plot, so we started embellishing. Now it’s about 7% history and 93% embroidery.”
Harrelson and Hyman’s flair for the unusual is fully realized in the play’s story, which follows three aimless bachelors whose lives are upturned when they encounter a coworker's antique Luger pistol. Harrelson admits to the Miami Herald that the play "is not for the humorless," and proves it with edgy dialogue chock-full of strong language and eyebrow-raising subject matter.
