SUCKERFISH a play by WT Underwood.

Running Time: 60 Minutes
On a city street corner, between madness and sanity, all that stands in the way of Hank and freedom is a certifiable homeless man, and a pay phone that can't hear out.
The victim of a hit and run, citizen Hank (Maffei) finds himself sprawled out on a city street corner, bleeding from his head, ignored by passersby. Mind and body are put to the test as his one hope of rescue lies mere feet away in the form of a payphone.
The problem is that this payphone is guarded by a homeless man (Smith Jr.) named "Dildohead"... And it can't hear out. An imposter (Wexler) and a misplaced acquaintance (Boehlke) torture the citizen with violence and a forgotten truth.
You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over... Into Suckerfish.
