According to Long Wharf, "Huey Maxmillian Bonfigliano has a problem. He’s still stuck on his ex-wife, even though she tore out his heart three years ago. He feels that he can’t be a man again until he gets her back. Enlisting the help of his best friend Aldo, Huey tries to woo her back just one final time."
Designing the production are Scott Bradley (set design), Linda Cho (costume design), Russell Champa (lighting design) and Sarah Pickett (sound design).
