Brian Richard Mori’s critically acclaimed play is set in an adult bookshop and movie arcade in Times Square on a scorching summer day in 1979. The story revolves around Earl, the middle-aged manager of the shop, who feels a weary disappointment on how his life has evolved, and his young friend, Mikie, a naïve and inexperienced nineteen-year-old. Despite the seamy surroundings, Earl has a strong sense of basic morality, and he wants to help Mikie achieve a better life than his own. When Earl sets up Mikie on a date with a waitress friend of his, the story takes a hilarious turn. The play explores themes of morality, friendship, sexuality, and the yearning for love. Therein lies much of the irony and comedy and timeliness of ADULT FICTION.
