This new play tells the story of three broken-hearted hipsters in 1977 NYC. They include a fragile reject of the "American Dream," whose flight from suburbia has led her into the arms of a middle-aged Jewish man. A man who is trying to avoid both himself and his culpability in the death of a young woman. Thirdly, his wife who has failed to provide the emotional refuge she'd promised and an oh-so-much younger actor who believes he is their salvation and always just one audition away from Hollywood nights.
