Interesting two man play with theme of alcoholism
1 September 2008 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this one on PBS in 1985 with Treat Williams playing Hud, a drunk whose wife just died, and Philip Bosco is the retired mobster friend who tries to help him kick the booze. Well done for what is was....a small production two man play that explores a personal story of addiction. I recall Bosco says Hud did a good job at the eulogy, but only because he was plastered. At one point Hud tries to get Bosco to shoot him, after chickening out himself. Anyone else remember this one? Originally aired on "America Playhouse", which Bosco went on to narrate. AP had a bunch of cutting edge themes back then, along with another PBS series, "Independent Focus".
