From the producers:The war in Vietnam is over and Brad, an ex-serviceman, lands in L.A. to start a new life. When he winds up trashed in Connie and Linda’s kitchen after a wild night of partying, the three strike a deal for an arrangement that has hilarious and devastating consequences for everyone. David Adjmi's "3C" is a terrifying yet amusing look at a culture that likes to amuse itself, even as it teeters on the brink of ruin.
According to early reports, this is a disturbing piece of theater, and potentially offensive to many theater-goers. The show contains strong language, adult situations, full male nudity, and graphic sexual references and representations.
Children 14 and under will not be permitted into the theater.
Brooklyn native David Adjmi's earlier work, "Elective Affinities," was commissioned by London's Royal Court Theatre and later premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Adjmi is the recipient of a 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship.What's Rattlestick Playwrights Theater?
