When Jeff, a luckless young security guard, and his tightly wound supervisor are drawn into an unexpected criminal investigation, loyalties are strained to the breaking point. This timely comic drama, by one of the most acclaimed writers of his generation, explores the way race, gender, and duty influence our perceptions and define our moral codes. How do we find justice when we live in a world of conflicting truths?
Status, allegiance, and social conventions are all called into question as Lonergan unravels this quirky, philosophical drama.Time Out NY has hailed the piece as, “A masterpiece. The best drama, the best comedy and the best romance of the year, all rolled into one.”
