Virginal, angry Denise Savage finds herself at a Bronx bar, surrounded by a clutch of losers. Some of them believe they have freedom at the bottom, while others know they’re still alone. And they’re all thinking that something new and exciting will happen tonight. John Patrick Shanley (they guy behind the screenplay for Moonstruck and the script of the Tony Award-winning Doubt) wrote this dark comedy in 1984, but the story of unrealized potential (and realizing the absence of potential) still rings true.
