“When you are at zero anything can happen. It’s like total possibility.”
Ben and Mary are battling through life in a suburb struggling with economic downturn. When Sharon and Kenny move in next door they do the neighbourly thing and invite the newcomers to a barbeque. So begins a somewhat unlikely friendship. The couples’ vulnerability brings them together in a delirious, dangerous frenzy of unleashed inhibitions and risk.
The Obie Award Winning, Pulitzer finalist play is an unsettling investigation of middle-class aspirations, suburban isolation and the divide between rich and poor.
