Manny and Lenny are wild and crazy guys who spend their time in a bar in Hohokus, New Jersey, complaining. Lenny wakes up one day and realizes he's got to do something with his life. He gets a job as an astroturf groomer at Giants Stadium, much to the dismay of Manny who claims he can't work because he has a metal sliver in his hand. Here is a funny and poignant look at what happens to a friendship when half of it grows up and moves on.

Published in New York Stories: Five Plays About Life in New York.

NIGHTS IN HOHOKUS was originally produced in New York by the Dragonfly Theatre Company, Lucas Walker, Artistic Director, at the Riverwest Theatre on June 17, 1987, under the direction of Angelo Tiffe.  The Production Stage Manager was Leah Schneider.

LENNY - late 20s; restless; anxious to go somewhere in life, but the safety of the past pulls on him.
MANNY - late 20s; a few years ago, he was probably the life of the party, now he's a chronic complainer. If he could sit in this bar 24 hours a day, he would. He has a sliver of metal in his right hand. It's 1/16" long, by the way.
