A gruff, affecting, and funny play. Byron and
Ames are old friends, reunited by mutual desperation. Ames has retreated to an
old shack to lick his wounds after his wife kicked him out of their house for
some adulterous indiscretion he can’t even recall. Over bourbon on ice, they
reflect and bicker until fifty years of love, friendship, and rivalry are put to
the test at the barrel of a gun.
