Long Wharf Theatre premiered this hard hitting parable about American materialism by the author of Modigliani, Split Second and Established Price. In their sumptuous home, the Reeds have hosted a party for their neighbors. It is late and everyone has gone when a final guest arrives, a fireman who is not of the Reeds' socio economic position. Nonetheless, the Reeds are gracious until the guest's desperation for material comforts, status and pride surfaces and things get nasty.
"Profane, smart and disturbingly funny . . . with an acuteness that's as up to date as this morning's newspaper headlines." - Rochester Times Union
"McIntyre demonstrates his visceral sense of theatricality as well as his own state of the heart awareness of contemporary behavior." - N.Y. Times
Premiered at The Long Wharf Theatre
