Upon arrival, Devin is shoved into a torrential melodrama of barroom brawls, outrageous love triangles and the worst performance of Hedda Gabler ever produced. He is sucked into the action by myriad batty characters, including a maniacal political dramatist, an emaciated director riddled with d.t.'s and a bipolar actor whose luck-and money-are about to run out. All the while Devin must fumble through his own awkward attempts at love-and somehow manage to come out on the other side.
Filled with poignancy, humor and eccentric revelations, The Delectable Mountains is a hilarious romp through the melodramatic tumult of growing up and falling in love.
