About this title

Synopsis:

An edgy suburban comedy. Three long-time friends meet at a bar, but before long they find themselves trapped in a crucible of competition and confession, both heartbreaking and sneaky-funny. "A remarkably fresh and witty piece of writing." -Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune "The first half of the play follows a night of Kevin, Andy, and Mike's barroom chatter. Neveu gets it exactly right: the staccato rhythm, the pregnant pauses, the sheer sad triviality of the whole empty conversation that too many of us have every night with our buddies after work. Mike, a bit dim but endlessly eager, repeats soundbites that he's heard or misheard, these substitutes for actual ideas keeping the conversation flowing. Andy is the go-getter who says all the right things, drops all the right names, thinks all the right thoughts. (Neveu captures his voice brilliantly, especially the endless stream of buzzwords - names of people and places that we are instantly able to peg from their context.)" -Martin Denton, nytheatre.com About the author: "Perhaps the city's closest equivalent to a young [David] Mamet." -Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune "One of the most prolific, intelligent, and innovative playwrights to write in Chicago in years, maybe decades." -Jack Helbig, PerformInk "The bard of midwestern angst." -Lucia Mauro, Chicago Magazine "Make no mistake. This is an author worth watching, and listening to." -Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune
