This wild farce is about two chums, Joey and Eddie, who are reunited late one night in Joey's bar. Eddie tells Joey about the bizarre, horrible things he's subjected himself to so that he might suffer enough to create a masterpiece novel. Stoic Joey reveals that inside he's the one who is really suffering. To help each other, they form an insane plan to "kill two birds with one rock." The outcome is hilarious.

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