Synopsis - In Martin McDonagh’s first American-set play, we are introduced to four quirky characters whose lives intersect in a seedy hotel room in small town America. Carmichael has been searching for his missing left hand for a quarter of a century. Enter two bickering, drug-dealing lovebirds with a hand to sell, plus a hotel clerk with an aversion to gunfire, and we’re set for a hilarious and profane roller coaster of love, hate, desperation and hope.
