‘Cocaine’ by Pendleton King

Cocaine is an honest portrait of drug abuse, prostitution, and finding love and hope in the quiet hours of the morning when all else seems futile. Joe, a former boxer, and Nora, his frail wife whose illness has incapacitated her from streetwalking, discuss their desperate situation and contemplate giving up entirely. Content warning for discussion of drug use, sex work, and a suicide attempt.

I produced this short play, and also read the stage directions.
