In this collection of three plays set in the same hotel room, award-winning novelist Barry Gifford brings his highly acclaimed writing to the theater for the first time.

In "Tricks" Moe and Lou share Darlene, a hooker they pass back and forth as they exchange and appropriate each other's identities in alternating moments of confusion and revelation. In "Blackout" Danny and Diane, an Oklahoma couple of the 1930s, cannot move beyond the grief of a personal tragedy. Refusing to accept the death of her son, Diane seeks refuge in low-level deliriums. In the third play, "Mrs. Kashfi, " a young boy experiences a spooky visitation while his mother voyages into the sea of clairvoyance with a fortune teller.
