WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Desperately clinging to his fading dignity, Charlie, a middle-aged, out-of-work actor, can't bring himself to engage in the games required to succeed in the cutthroat entertainment industry. When he embarks on a destructive relationship that makes him feel empowered anew, he learns what is truly at stake. Award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius, Bad Dates, Law & Order) examines the shifting power dynamics of personal relationships and the empty narcissism of American culture in this hot new brutal comedy.
