A play by Thomas Ward, directed by Bain Boehlke. Tim is a burned out stand comedian making a stop in International Falls, Minnesota for a nightmare gig. Dee is a hotel desk clerk and aspiring comic who finds her way into Tim’s room after the show. Intercutting between the hotel room and Tim’s act, Dee seeks the truth behind the jokes, turning their one night stand into a philosophical discussion of comedy, marriage, parenthood, religion, and fart jokes. The line between comedy and tragedy is blurred as Tim and Dee must face the inevitable post-coital question, “Now what?”
