Steve Tesich

Published by Samuel French Inc

6 Male 2 Female

Chris, a burnt out sixties radical, has settled in Chicago seeking obscurity as an insurance underwriter. He wants to forget his activist past, but he is besieged by old cronies and unwanted new acquaintances, including a former Black militant who has been surgically reborn as a female cop, a former wife who speaks in sixties rock lyrics, a bomb throwing Serbian restauranteur, Chris' former partner in radicalism who now despises the women's movement, a prostitute who believes in the moral virtues of promiscuity, and Chris' Black Polish landlady

Mix these volatile ingredients and you have a wild and funny farce

"Steve Tesich has not only found a great subject, but he has also found the courage to tackle it in a daring, mischievous way" ~ N.Y. Times

"Outrageously funny.... An updated, satirical Feydeau farce, with all American politics substituted for all French sex" ~ N.Y. Post
