OVERVIEW
From the wildly original author of The Motherf**ker with the Hat.
Ex-cop “Pops” Washington and his ex-con son Junior are barely holding on to one of the last great rent stabilized apartments in Manhattan. Pops has his hands (not to mention his apartment) full as he navigates a steady stream of sketchy houseguests and sweats out the impending verdict on his law suit against the police department. A celebration of the glorious contradictions that make up human nature, this rowdy dark comedy looks at the slippery nature of justice, and the grit it takes to finally move on.

Please remember this is an invite for Veterans only, NO PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF 18 will be allowed for the dinner or the performance.
