In a stark motel room at the edge of the Mojave Desert, May, a disheveled young woman and Eddie, struggle through recriminations and physical violence. Eventually May and Eddie tire of their struggle and embrace—but it is evident that the respite is temporary and that their love, the curse of the past which haunts them, will remain forever damned and hopeless.


“Winner of the [1984] Obie Award [for Best New American Play], this masterfully constructed work brings searing intensity and rare theatrical excitement to its probing, yet sharply humorous study of love, hate and the dying myths of the Old West.”
