A love-starved Manhattanite husband and wife struggle to satisfy their child-like desire to "have it all" during the high-rolling, morally skewed 1980s. When they take in Inky, a young Slavic nanny who's obsessed with Muhammad Ali, to care for their nine-year-old daughter and infant son, they are forced to face both their limitations and their potential for change. Inky is a darkly comic story about the importance of fighting back.

Published Reviews

"Originality -- it's rare but you can experience the pleasurable sharp intake of breath it brings by seeing Rinne Groff's Inky...a neat little noir comedy full of deft twists, acerbic quips, and a lunge at your guts."

Francine Russo, The Village Voice

"Striking...Inky packs a punch."

Gordon Cox, Newsday

"Cheeky appeal...a revenge fantasy in which the humble prevail."

The New Yorker
