Additional Info

This long running Off-Broadway hit from New York's famed Circle Repertory is by the author of The Film Society, The Substance of Fire and The End of the Day. Monologues set in hotel rooms, two by an American businessman who sells defective baby formula in third world markets and one by his wife, portray a former 1960's idealist, Hoyle, who has succumbed to the corruption so endemic to modern America. His wife talks about him, their marriage and their son who was murdered for his cheap but expensive looking wristwatch as she prepares to deliver a speech to other corporate wives. In the final hotel room, Hoyle has been fired, his marriage is over and he finally mourns for his son.
