THE STORY: A darkly comic exploration of that primordial force that makes us slow down at the scene of an accident or eavesdrop on a fight in an adjacent motel room. When Ray, an attorney badly in debt to the wrong people, is offered a lucrative, if repugnant case that will require him to break the law, it precipitates a night in which he and his brother, Warren, discover that their catastrophic life choices have less to do with bad luck and everything to do with the mystery of attraction.
“…sophisticated and ambitious…touching and funny…” —NY Times. “…hilariously amusing dialogue…” —CurtainUp. “Rarely have a pair of pathetic, degenerate and whiny losers been so much fun to listen to…a dark, quirky comedy.” —NY Daily News.
