Bright Those Claws That Mar the Flesh

It's a stormy midsummer's night in the middle of nowhere. The recently accredited facilitator of a sobriety support group is preparing for his first session. One by one, the addicts arrive. Unable to be restrained, they become increasingly distracted, maniacal, and, yes, intoxicated.

A lunatic farce of degenerate horror-comedy.

'McStay's script is clever. He has woven many cultural and literary references into the text (most notably the Sylvia Plath poem The Pursuit from which the title is derived), and he brings many strange elements into one setting, continually adding more depth and unexpected plot developments, and somehow they work.'
