A FUNNY WORLD PREMIERE PLAY WITH A VERY SERIOUS EDGE
by Dennis A. Pratt & Robert Vincent O'Neil
Directed by Barry Pearl (GREASE) & Robert Vincent O'Neil (AVENGING ANGEL)
Staring: Gary Lee Reed and Matthew Kimbrough
Harry and Ray are partners who've had each other's back for decades. They've always met for breakfast at their favorite deli because Harry's a creature of habit. However, today Harry has chosen to meet at a rundown diner in a low class neighborhood. In this mysterious diner is a strung-out, young waitress. When it becomes obvious to Ray that this isn't Harry's first time coming to this joint and that Harry may have some feelings for this woman half his age he demands to know why they're there. Harry explains that he wants Ray to help him kill a man. When the waitress's boyfriend comes in with his associate things start to heat up and the machismo between two old goats and two young thugs escalates. It's not the "who, what, where or how" that makes this "hit" difficult for the two, it's the "why" Harry wants this man dead that is so damned disturbing. A unique and provocative story about 2 old men caught in the crossfire of their own personal purgatory.
