The latest play from our own legendary company member and leading light of the American alternative theatre. On the road in America, Danny and Suzie Q. cross paths with Mona, an ex-showgirl, the poet Skintite, Uncle Bud, a carnival barker and the chanteuse Miss Koko. As they each pursue the own destinies their paths converge with ironic humor, a few songs and stories in the old weird American landscape. A haunting comedy.
