Chad has stumbled home from the bar with a new friend, Carmine. Chad is obviously worn out from a night of drinking. Carmine is obviously homeless.

Poison Apple Initiative is thrilled to kick off its third season with the world premiere of New York playwright Jakob Holder's striking powder keg of a play Housebreaking, a tightly-wound drama that exemplifies the adage“You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.” Presented in a showcase in New York as part of the Cherry Lane Mentor Project, Housebreaking was refined under the guidance of Charles Mee (Big Love).
