Hunting Humans


By Michael Thompson

4 losers – Jay Mac, the compulsive gambler stockbroker – Rev, the medical student addicted to pills – the schlumpy Lump – and Fick, the secret mobster – are holed up in a hotel in Atlantic City, mourning the death of their leader. Their vigil becomes even more intense when they realize that their leader may have faked his death and is planning his return to them that night. Or it just might be Jerry, the giant who’s been haunting their dreams – who might just be real after all. A pitch-black comedy.
