The Cherry Lane Mentor Project presents this new work about a strange agreement forged between a high school drug dealer and the father of this former best friend.
When the dealer does a drop off at a new address, he’s unexpectedly reunited with the father of his childhood best friend. The laid-off father is holed up to re-start the painting career of his youth, and this young entrepreneur wants to help. So, they make an unusual arrangement.
Cherry Lane’s Mentor Project pairs three early-career playwrights in a season-long, 1-on-1 mentoring relatonships with experienced dramatists. On 'A Patron of the Arts' playwright Kate Cortesi was mentored by Anne Washburn.
