Another excellent play from the Studio Theatre. This one is worth catching. I’ll keep my review short, since this play is only up for another 1.5 weeks.

Floyd King is stirring as Richard Harkin (from what I hear, King is always stirring), the ailing, blind, drunken Irishman on who drives the story. The rest of the cast are also rousing as his various houseguests on the day of x-mas eve, who come over for a drink and stay for 10. The play is funny in all the right places, but that does not take away from its power. It is ultimately about men confronting their demons and sharing their stories, and doing what men do best… drinking till they are stupid. I highly recommend that you catch this show and I give it 4.5 out of 5 Starving Artists.
