'Lenny is a recently released ex-convict. Daisy, his alcoholic girlfriend, craves a ''real'' life with a ''real'' man and abandons him at their local in favour of some cheap Chinese takeout. At the bar is Skank, a failed actor-turned-junkie, who is trying to outlast the rainstorm and get a buyback. De Maris, a seventeen-year-old gun-brandishing single mother wants to learn to turn tricks. She enlists the aid of Chickie, Skank''s girlfriend, a young crackhead hooker. But the bar is about to be sold up as the New York real estate boom kicks in. Guirgis'' cast of low life have lack of self-pity tattooed to their souls.
Published to tie in with the Hampstead Theatre''s production in April 2003, this is the second play by the writer of Jesus Hopped the A Train ''Shocking, shattering, stunningly well-written'' (Daily Telegraph); ''Guirgis airs metaphysical ideas seldom touched by British dramatists'' (The Times).'
