New York City
Ava Adelman, once a suburban wife and mother, and Sir Farquhar, a claimant to English peerage, live in large cardboard boxes in Moonshine Alley, the sole occupants of what Ava refers to as “a highly desirable residential area” near several up-scale restaurants. They dine on gourmet scraps, competing with a rat named Ashley for the delicacies. However, the bane of their existence is Peggy Dinsmore, a social worker who is determined to rescue them by moving them to a homeless shelter. Peter Campbell’s Moonshine Alley masterfully mocks our society’s moral ambivalence, bureaucratic obsequiousness, and police state overkill.
