"I'm basically enormously tired all the time, I'm not sleeping at night."

Hit Man is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series In The Dark. It was originally broadcast in 1994.


Joe is hit-man who talks about past jobs. He is hired to kill his friend. A woman down the hall complains about her diabetic symptoms, talks about having been a jazz singer, and then sings in a hoarse, spastic voice. Joe coaches an actor in building a sad revelation and asks for a story about "someone younger." Larry Block talks about a financial problem, asks if he is being taped, then talks about playing a diabetic patient for a medical school training program. What is a right to life?
