Playwrights Horizons presents the world premiere of a play by Adam Rapp (Pulitzer Prize finalist, Obie Award for Red Light Winter). Directed by Carolyn Cantor, this is a co-production with Edge Theater. A disgruntled misfit takes a job as an attack dummy in a women's self-defense class and finds himself mysteriously drawn to the repressed bookworm who's beating on him. But all's not well: with local children vanishing at an alarming rate, our hero, his lady friend, and a motley assortment of poets, butchers, and punk librarians prepare to battle the darkness on the edge of town.
