IN THE SACK by Dennis Bush

£5.00

A summer evening in the suburbs: Two guys and a couple bottles of beer.

Barry mentions that his girlfriend wants him to have a surgical procedure to reduce the sag and swing of a certain sack he’s very attached to. His buddy, Wayne, an opinionated truth talker and bullshitter, goes ballistic.

Wayne’s wife, Paula, is a ballsy broad with a fondness for cocktails and a collection of Precious Moments figurines. When push comes to shove, she knows how to knock Wayne into place.

Barry’s girlfriend, Kristie, is pretty enough to believe that nobody’s rules apply to her. While Barry and Paula share laughs in the kitchen, Kristie reveals some of Barry’s disturbing behind-closed-doors behavior.

As the booze and bile flows, polite conversation turns to the baring of naked truths. The world of In the Sack spins on raucous laughs and deadly barbs.

It’s all fun and games till everyone gets hurt.
