Tim, a burned out standup comedian has a gig at a motel in International Falls, Minnesota. Aspiring comedian and motel desk clerk, Dee, ends up in Tim’s room one night after his performance. The night turns into a philosophical discussion of comic theory, marriage, parenthood and religion. The line between comedy and tragedy is blurred as both characters are forced to ask , “Now what?”

The Dallas Morning News wrote of the workshop production, “International Falls is so much fun to watch and so painful when it wraps itself up,” and D Magazine called it “blazing good.”
