Study in progress (rough cut)

Based on Elaine May’s film “Mikey and Nicky”
Writer: Elaine May

Nick is desperate, holed up in a basement, suffering from an ulcer and convinced that a local mobster wants him killed. He calls Mikey, his friend since childhood, but when Mikey arrives, Nick won’t go with him: his moods swing. He first wants to go to his wife and kid to say goodbye, then a party at his girlfriend’s apartment, then a movie theater, then the cemetery where his mom is buried. So begins a long night as Mike tries to take care of Nick, calm him down and get him out of town. Tempers fray and the friendship is tested. Meanwhile, a hit man who’s getting information from someone is looking for Nick.
