Want runs approximately 75 minutes, and will be presented without an intermission.
A group of former junkies and sex addicts gather in a California beach flophouse to overcome their desires with an aggressive dose of "tough love" group therapy. When a strange young woman shows up on their doorstep, their sobriety, celibacy and faith in each other are all put to the test. The denizens of Zayd Dohrn's Want follow a new age approach which begs the question: cure or cult?
