The Dreamer Examines His Pillow

by John Patrick Shanley

Tommy a would-be-artist drinks himself into oblivion whilst trying to get a grapple on the devil he is convinced resides within. When he is confronted by Donna his ex-lover and sister to Mona, a 16 year old girl who is caught up in the orbit of something much bigger than herself.
