Central Works presents its debut production, the Northern California premiere of a provocative revenge drama.

In the baling room of a Massachusetts wastepaper company, two former high school buddies, suddenly reunited, receive a visit from another former schoolmate they have both lusted over since the 2nd grade.  What ensues is tense, funny and ultimately both fulfilling and terrifying.
