About In the Solitude of Cotton Fields

Late at night in a dark alley, two men meet. One has something to sell and believes that the other has something he wishes to buy. The other protests, no …! But of course, deep down he must desire something, and whatever it is the seller has it for him. For any other writer this would be just the prelude to a rapidly unfolding plot. But Koltes traps his two characters, like Beckett’s tramps, in their never-ending prelude. Waiting for a deal (Godot) to arrive, hoping that eventually it will: these are the central dynamics of our consumerist culture; and Koltes builds the suspense of the encounter with a unique mix of humour, mystery, philosophy and terror. Until the chilling, unexpected conclusion.
