Jobsite Theater says
Stumpy and Latham are working-class housepainters in Gloucester, Massachusetts (home to Horovitz’s theater company and the setting of many of his plays). Husband and wife Bummy and Lexi are their upscale clients. Blue may be the color being painted on the walls, but blood-red and blackmail emerge as dominant hues of the palette in this darkly comic drama.

Hang onto your drop-cloths because Horovitz is about to take you into a story painted with seduction, betrayal, and deceit. Who will cash in their paint chips first and take the fall? Who will be left standing when the last lies are told? With themes of gentrification, economic inequality, and infidelity this pitch-black comedy will surely feel right at home here in the Tampa Bay area!

International award-winning playwright, poet, and film-maker Israel Horovitz calls the region and Jobsite Theater home for a portion of the year. Both he and the company look forward to building on the success of last season’s gripping Theatre Tampa Bay Recommended production of Lebensraum, hailed a high critical success by regional critics and described “as good as it gets” from an ecstatic playwright who was in residence through opening weekend. Jobsite’s association with Horovitz also earned them a 2016 Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Award for “Best Link with the Greater Theatre World.” Horovitz will soon be honored as a "Legend of Off Broadway" at the 2017 Off Broadway Alliance Awards along
