The play presents an old beggar, running from death, who goes to a whore and spends all his savings, to the horror of his grasping beggar of a son. It is packed with sharp humor on the ultimate absurdity of life and its desires. It will be acted by David Mandelbaum as the old beggar, Eli Rosen as the son and Malky Goldman as the eponymous hooker.
