Casting/Production Comments:

These characters are people so cast people not color or race.

From the Author:

When Daniel approached me about writing the play for Cino Nights, I was pumped. I loved the small space at Jimmy's 43. It's a real challenge to write something that will live in that space. Intimate. I also wanted to write something completely different than what I had written before and here was my chance to do it. I knew that I wanted to mess with the narrative of the structure and push the boundaries of time, space and memories. I think what's important about the play is not the logical, intellectual understanding of the characters but the emotional arc each of them goes through in the course of the play. I was very proud and honored to have had a chance to work with three remarkable, giving actors and a tender, intelligent, on the point director.
