New York City in the 50's: an Army vet, in love with a secretary at CCNY, would win her by setting up a jazz club on Ninth Avenue with the help of a black saxophonist he has befriended in the service and a couple of low-lives he has met along the way.

Additional Notes:
Great Kills, written in a style reminiscent of such plays as David Mamet's American Buffalo, and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night, is a darkly comic, emotionally gripping tale of a get-rich-quick scheme that goes awry. With the changing landscape of mental health, Meadowbrook, the institution where Mr. G has worked in maintenance for over thirty years, is shutting down. When Mr. G mentions to his son, Tim, who's living home after having lost his position as an adjunct professor of literature, how the institution's furniture -- the kind of stuff you find in a doctor's office -- is lying abandoned in a field, he dreams of making a fortune from selling the salvage. To finance the plan, he involves his estranged childhood friend, restaurateur, Robert. Over the course of a drunken evening of scheming, the plan becomes less real, as the men's desperate realities become more apparent, and a devastating family secret is revealed.
