Description

Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another man’s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackie’s tenuous progress. With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.  

Stephen Adly Guirgis’ rapid-fire black comedy was a smash hit on Broadway, where _The New York Times _called it a “bruising, tragicomic apache dance of love, betrayal and indecision.”
