Plot Summary

Sign Up for E-News

Time Period-1960s. In his upper east side Manhattan apartment, Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold, a self-awoved “32 year-old, pock-marked, Jew fairy”, complete with surprise gift: “Cowboy” a street hustler. As the evening wears on, fueled by drugs and alcohol, bitter, unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong.

This seminal work of the Off-Broadway movement premiered in 1968 and was a long-running hit onstage, later filmed with the original cast. In 2010, the play made a triumphant return to New York City in an highly praised production produced by Drama Desk and Obie Award winning Transport Group.
