Drama

Settings Of Play - In and around Gillette, a small northeastern Wyoming town in the alte summer of 1981.

The year is 1981 and Mickey Hollister and young Bobby Nobis have drifted into the oil boom town of Gillette, Wyoming, in search of freedom, love and big coin. They meet a spaced out tool pusher, two travelling prostitutes and an adolescent girl on the run with her biker boyfriend. Mickey and Bobby achieve some of their dreams, but the conflict between friendship and self interest turns friends to foes.

"A true audience pleaser ... earthy, rousing, contemporary and tough minded.... Very funny, well written serious comedy.... Hauptman's long suit is dialogue and the creating of strong, highly individual, often eccentric characters." - Variety

"Its zinging, sharp humor, its capture of a time and place and its wholly American idealism equating greed and patriotism is surely out of today's headlines. It's real entertainment." - WEEI, Boston

"A very funny, satisfying ... first rate American play." - Arts and Entertainment

American Repertory Theatre, 1985.
