At a New Mexico retreat on the eve of World War II, three aging British émigrés take their last stabs at artistic success and domestic happiness, when their plans are upended by a handsome young composer with radical aims.

*O'Neill Finalist*

In a London pub during the second Iraq war, American bartender Jonathan worries his German girlfriend will leave him to travel with her Palestinian bestie. His visiting brother Ed worries about fending off the advances of a Papua New Guinean tribal chief (although he probably should worry more about finding his missing menagerie of adopted, disabled children). Then the boys’ parents show up, revealing a financial collapse of Enronic proportions. Their world collapsing around them, the brothers naturally launch a race to be first to save the Middle East.
