About the show

Boundless Theatre presents the East Coast premiere of Octavio Solis' play about a dorky computer programmer who tries to blow off steam in local Dallas bar and ends up having a night he'll never forget. More…

Scout, a computer programmer with the promise of upward mobility, attracts the interest of Liza and Vince, foolhardy opportunists in a complicated relationship. Vince drags Liza and Scout home to his housebound wife Elena, who sits around smoking pot, watching porn, and craving snow peas. A drink- and drug-fueled night between unlikely friends scrapes desires, secrets, and identities down to the bone. A fascinating early play by Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Octavio Solis.

"Director Elena Araoz doesn’t let the charged atmosphere of danger slip, and keeps us strapped into the seat of the roller coaster with no escape from the exhilarating ride. She sticks her finger into the open wound of each of the characters’ vulnerability, inspiring formidable performances...It’...
