As the moon edges into darkness, a cry for help goes
out from a remote fishing shack. Byron takes a cross-country bus
to come to the aide of his friend, Ames, whose wife has thrown him
out. In their bourbon-soaked reunion, they grapple over the women
they've lost and the ones who remain. Pulitzer Prize winning author,
Sam Shepard's stunning new play rides the line between laughter
and violence, as buried feelings begin to erupt in the shadow of
a shotgun and an approaching lunar eclipse.
