San Jose Stage Company Presents:
Between Riverside and Crazy by Stephen Adly Gurguis
Directed by Jeffrey Lo

Retired cop and recent widower Walter "Pops" Washington slings back whiskey while his newly paroled son and friends wander in and out of his longtime apartment on Riverside Drive. The dog is a nuisance, the landlord wants him gone, and the NYPD is demanding a settlement on an outstanding lawsuit. After an enlightening encounter, Pops decides to take things in his own hands with a final ultimatum, while everyone else hustles to get what they think they deserve.
