Every Thursday is Guys’ Night for a small group of friends who gather to vent – with a “No Ladies” policy strictly enforced. Passing a baseball bat as a “talking stick”, this motley crew of men support each other through stalled careers, dashed romances, and a fast-changing world. When an unexpected visitor crashes the party, their notions of what it means to be a man in today’s America are suddenly upended.
Don’t miss this hilarious comedy of-the-moment by Ellen Fairey, whose work has been hailed “a must-see for anyone who follows important new plays.” (Chicago Tribune)
“A knowing and laugh-out-loud funny work about a group of Americans in crisis: men. It manages to deal with many of the more complex issues of the day — gender politics, economic duress, the #MeToo movement, even police violence and racism — while appearing understanding of, and compassionate toward, all sides. But the purview of Ellen Fairey’s play is not limited to white men, heterosexual men, or even men of a particular age…she is exploring the whole Jurassic mess of us, in all our diverse glory.” — Chicago Tribune
