JUST AFTER the end of the Reagan era, Keith Reddin's black
comedy pits inexperienced and impressionable youth against forces
skilled in the theory and practice of avarice, with disastrous results.
The play follows Tommy (Stanford), a young and eager fellow just hired as a sales
representative by a company that sells and installs home-security
systems. While learning the business from his cynical and felonious
boss Heinrich (Walton), he falls in love with his first customer,
Gale (Liccardo), an older single mother with a teenage son (Alprin). He is faced
with a life-altering moral choice when he discovers that his company uses
its access into customers' homes to case and then rob them.
"Aaron Stanford captured Tommy's mixture of youthful bravado and
growing maturity with a plaintive, haunting truth." --Doug DeVita, Off
