Rallis and Debbie’s marriage has reached its expiration date. In fact, it’s soured and stuck to the bottom of the carton. She wants him to pack his stuff and hit the bricks, but he’s clinging to the past like a cat on a screen door. How far will a man go to hang onto his lady? It’s a thin line between love and hate, between a kiss and a punch, between an ice cream cone and a beer bottle to the back of the head.


Derek Ahonen | Sarah Lemp | Matthew Pilieci and Vanessa Vaché.

“Darkly, darkly funny – committed, hard-nosed performances.”


“Blessed with smart, naturalistic acting.”

NY Theatre.com

“Neil Simon meets Sam Shepard and the pairing is a happy one.”

“Audaciously crude and equally entertaining dark comedy. A perfect fit for The Amoralists, a troupe that specializes in shock and awe. Blue-collar setting yields blue-chip laughs”
