Four old college friends reunite in Manhattan and what starts as a stiff and awkward game of catch up devolves into a drug and rancor soaked mess when old rivalries and affections boil to the surface; abetted by drugs, professional jealousies, a new cultural divide and the arrival of their favorite college professor; a famous and deeply troubled novelist with a pretty, young girlfriend and a mysterious box in tow. Twenty years on, class is back in session and if they can get out of this cocktail party alive, they just might learn something of value once again. A dark look at the peril of the aging hipster and what it means to be an artist, a parent and a "perennial favorite" and how challenging it is to remain intimate and engaged in your surroundings in middle age. You don't have to remember 1993 to relate but it doesn't hurt.

"Marc Spitz is one of my favorite playwrights; I have been to at least half of his dozen plays, and I have never been disappointed. He knows how to shake people up; make them laugh, gasp and gag. Expect bad taste, bad language, snappy dialogue, theatrical surprises and maybe something that really grosses you out."
-Tom Murrin, Paper Magazine
