A huge sell-out success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009, Barflies
is drawn from the short stories and poems of cult American writer Charles Bukowski and is a rumbustious encounter with his alter-ego Henry Chinaski and a bevvy of the women who shaped his life and work.
As both playwright and director, he has also mastered the art of overkill, relying heavily on the overused shtick of a couple of colorful barflies
and oversaturating us with lip-synched drag numbers.
Human caring abounds with tall tales that lead the barflies
to throw their glasses into the fireplace as a tribute to the acceptance of this bizarre blend of aliens, humans, time travelers, and even a talking dog.
