About the show

This new, soul-searching drama from Parity Productions and New Perspectives Theatre Company transports you from the New York City streets to Freddie’s, a Kentucky dive bar.

Pull up a stool, and grab a drink. It's Nickel Beer Night at Freddie's Place. Ken has come to drown his sorrows, but no amount of alcohol can wash away the pain of his broken relationship with Levi, nor the secrets of his past.
