Set in the Bronx, NY, this iconic play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley collides us with two of society's beautiful, yet dysfunctional city misfits. After a chance encounter in a forgotten bar, their defenses dissolve and a spontaneous night of heart-thumping confession, love and chaos unfolds. With no easy way out, both are forced to dive deep in order to find a forgiveness that offers the rare chance of a more hopeful future. This is an explosive, deeply affecting play, exploring the issues of personal alienation and the redemptive power of love.


Danny: Dean Perrine
