In his upper eastside 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.

DONALD – twenty-eight, medium blond, wholesome American good looks.
EMORY – thirty-three, small, frail, very plain.
LARRY – twenty-nine with a starkly simple sense of individual style and color in his clothes. Dark eyes, dark hair, extremely handsome.
HANK – thirty-two, tall, solid, athletic, attractive.
BERNARD – twenty-eight, African-American, tall, gaunt, nice-looking, dressed in Ive-League clothes.
COWBOY – twenty-two, light blond, muscle-bound, too pretty.

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.
