Set in a theatre dressing room in turn of the century Cleveland, this frenetic farce is about the efforts of a troupe of Yiddish actors to sober up Yossel Terrifimenschsky, a great star and a hopeless drunk. A young actor claims he knows a sure fire cure for drunkenness. He will help them out if they will present his realist drama The Kesslers of Hester Street. Published with The Cemetery in The Last Laugh.
