Every boy needs a home. And teen beauty Malcolm is having trouble finding his. His father (if he ever really had one) is M.I.A., and everyone he meets seems to be offering love: an astrologer who sends him into the homes of strangers; an ancient man who disagrees with his wife as to whether he is 192 or 97 years old; a youngish pop star named Melba; and a drunken milionairess with a penchant for, um, lets say, chicken.
But what will they want in return?
In 1965, novelist James Purdy (63: Dream Palace, In a Shallow Grave) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee (The Goat, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) conspired to create this peek into the nature of corruption, sin, and desire.
Cherry Red's artistic director, Ian Allen (Thumbsucker, Angel Shit, "Kenneth, What Is the Frequency?" [co-writer]), will direct a cast of fourteen in this filthy and funny answer to the question: How does one love a child?
Featuring Catherine Aselford, Tanya Baskin, Carlos Bustamante, Vince Carag, Melissa Leigh Douglass, Marcus Lawrence, Kenny Littlejohn, Brent Lowder, Glee Murray, Tom Neubauer, Richard Renfield, Jack Seeley, Richard Wilt, and starring 15-year-old Brandon Wilson as Malcolm.
