John Patrick Shanley, screenwriter of Moonstruck and Doubt, writes a play about dreamers, about lost souls, real people struggling to communicate and discover their reason for existence. They fight, they yell, they laugh, they claw, they drink, they f*$%, they alternatively cover and confront, they spew themselves onto life, right or wrong.
A striking, surreal study of the often bizarre byways that love between men and women can follow. Told in three related scenes, the play uses indirection and richly evocative language to make its unsettling but ultimately illuminating points.
