By Israel Horovitz
Directed by David M. Jenkins

Stumpy and Latham are working-class housepainters in Gloucester, MA (home to Horovitz’s theater company and the setting of many of his plays). Husband and wife Bummy and Lexi are their upscale clients. Blue may be the color being painted on the walls, but blood-red and blackmail emerge as dominant hues of the palette in this dark comedy. Hang onto your drop-cloths because Horovitz is about to take you into a story painted with seduction, betrayal, and deceit. Who will cash in their paint chips first and take the fall? Who will be left standing when the last lies are told? With themes of gentrification, economic inequality, and infidelity this pitch-black comedy will surely feel right at home here in Tampa Bay!
