A dark comedy by Gary Britson

Approximate Playing Time: 90 Minutes

Elder, an up-and-coming attorney, murdered a man of legend—or so the story goes. Now he lives under the supervision of his parole officer, Folter, who spills out the unfortunate tale to Pendarvis, one of Elder’s new “clients.” Elder can no longer practice law but rather has taken in a small group of homeless, unemployed ? or unemployable ? men in an attempt to help them find a modicum of success in a less-than-amiable world. And under the roof of his house, outcast souls collide head-on. “Pen” wants a job where he won’t get beaten up. Norm has given up after countless interviews which end in “Good Luck” — which he claims is the new “F-You” — and now plans to rob a bank. Krikor, who has never experienced intimacy with a woman, is writing a 1000-page romance novel set in the “mists of time”. And then there is Eliza, Elder’s soon-to-be ex-wife, who threatens their fragile existence by putting the house up for sale. When Eliza arrives in all her fury to claim dominion over the house, Elder asks Pen to hook him up with someone who might “remedy the injustice.” But Eliza is one step ahead and seduces the forlorn Krikor into a crime of passion ripped from the pages of his unpublished manuscript.
