DeLillo's second play, VALPARAISO tells - through a series of media interviews - the story of a man who embarked on what he imagined would be a completely routine business trip to Valparaiso, Indiana. As he discovered, however, and as he relates in the interviews, it proved to be anything but run-of-the-mill, turning instead into a journey of rather more epic and international proportions - and one which, furthermore, causes him to question his hitherto unchallenged assumptions about modern life, its aspirations and ambitions. Written in a witty, slightly tongue-in-cheek style, this is a sharp, satirical look at the information age in which we live, where the world as we know it is shaped more by what we read in newspapers, hear on the radio, or see on TV than it is by our own individual experiences.
