As their prized pregnant pooch swells, they seem on the way to strike it big. Their dreams are disrupted when Boomer brings home Marisol, who should be a one-night stand, and Dirt finds a boy who will never grow up...

Note: Dirt and Boomer are both mixed (half-Latino, half white). Boomer must be able to pass for white.

    This is a dark, engaging play that made my mind lean in. It's smart, original, does a great job at producing tension with artistic nuance, and it's economical playwriting. It's fantastic.
