Description

Ruskin Group Theatre proudly presents a comedy that knows “the greatest, the only, success is to be able to love,” created by story teller John Patrick Shanley (whose work has garnered a Tony Award, an Academy Award, and the Pulitzer Prize).  Huey and Aldo are two passionate men, who have been best friends their whole lives.  Unwittingly, they set out to conquer love.  It quickly becomes clear that they must first prove their manhood and reconcile with their past… through a “vampire vulture monster fiend” that Huey once married.
