Summary
Each night since he attempted suicide, the old man has come to the cafe -- a clean, well-lighted place -- to get drunk, staying until closing time at 2:30 a.m. But on this night, the younger of the two waiters turns the old man out an hour early, anxious to go home to his wife. How might this confident young man feel if he knew that his somewhat older coworker is also looking for a clean, well-lighted place?This 1994 dramatization of Hemingway's much-anthologized short story about the human need for an outpost in the darkness makes a powerful existential statement about the insufficiency of religion as a source of comfort
