Minsk and Wimple live at the bottom of the stairs under the bright in the up and every day is the same. They arise to have their breakfast brought by Pwa-Pwa , commit to their labors in the afternoon, and relax in the evening listening to the news from Mercer ("Isn't he very good?"). Minsk blusters, Wimple frets, Pwa-Pwa flusters and every day is the same. That is, until today.
Imagine if Beckett grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons in the American heartland and you have a good idea of what you're getting into here. Grit is a fable about the absurdity of the American dream, and a love story to those delusional enough to grit and bear their indignities for the hope of something they can call their own.
