by Tim Blake Nelson
directed by Christie Leigh Carver
In a small, dying Oklahoma town, a young woman finally meets her beau: a just-released convict with whom she’s corresponded for three years. We watch her story weave in and out of the memories of a weary detective investigating a grisly case in a nearby lake, and a broken, mute boy who may hold the key to the mystery.
Actor and playwright Tim Blake Nelson conjures a ghost town filled with damaged, desperate people and dark secrets in this haunting drama.

“REMARKABLE. An impassioned, unsparing investigation of a sadly familiar American tragedy… Nelson [shows] courage in addressing some boldly profound questions rarely raised in today’s theater.” —Seattle Times.
