About the show

Theater for the New City presents a psychological thriller about an African-American doctor's encounter with a stranger. More…

On a dark day as lightning cracks, thunder booms, and rain threatens, a stranger carrying an ominous looking large black satchel appears at the door of a well-established African-American doctor. The doctor is enjoying a day off in the comfort of his home. The man entreats the doctor to give him shelter from the storm. But what's in the large black satchel? We all want to know...or do we? This bone-chilling psychological thriller is a mental game of predator and prey.

See it if you want to see Bradley Cooper. and learn about a true story that is dated.
