Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Full Length, Comedy 2 Ints., 1 Ext. 6 m, 2 f Chris, a burnt out sixties radical, has settled in Chicago seeking obscurity as an insurance underwriter. He wants to forget his activist past, but is besieged by old cronies and unwanted new ones: a former Black militant, now a transexual city cop; his loopy ex-wife who speaks only the words of rock song cliches; a bomb wielding Serbian restauranteur; a former partner in radicalism who now rails agianst the "women's movement"; a prostitute who espouses the virtues of promiscuity, and his African American-Polish landlady. "Steve Tesich has not only found a great subject, but he has also found the courage to tackle it in a daring, mischievous way."-The New York Times
