When an aimless former rock star loses his job and finds himself broke with nowhere to go, he's forced to move in with his adopted son and roommate in their cramped New York City apartment.

"Lucas Kavner's hilarious play is a love song to slightly immoral and totally irresponsible losers, and it works."

"Five finely-tuned actors deliver in a haunting and layered work."
"There's an atomic nature to the play; it's a particle chamber with collisions and scary potentials."
"Well done, Mr. Kavner."

"This drama, focusing on one man's struggle to start a new life and repair his relationship with his son, is thoroughly engrossing due to a captivating script and strong acting performances."
"Undoubtedly a great show. Its blend of witty dialogue and authentic-feeling drama makes it a thoroughly engrossing work from beginning to end with the type of snappy dialogue and action-rich scenes that entice those who do not normally enjoy theater. "
"Actors Mark Jenkins and Laura Ramadei (with the guidance of director Stephen Brackett) maximize the comedic effect of their lines, adding much humor to the play, which offsets the moments of intense drama well."
