At Harry Hope’s saloon, the biannual visit of charismatic traveling salesman Hickey (Washington) is cause for celebration. But when a newly sober Hickey arrives, his renewed outlook on life threatens to upend the lives of his old friends, leading to a series of devastatingly comic and heartbreaking events. This epic 18-character drama is directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe ('Shuffle Along,' 'Bring in 'da Noise/Bring in 'da Funk,''Angels in America.')
