This drama is a study of hypocracy told in a folksy, theatical style is a purely American tale where Wilson combines a brooding political conscience with an affecting eye for the grace in human imperfection.Set in a Mid-west town filled with everyday people you will find yourself drawn into their world and their secrets.

An abstract set and environment (scenery and light design by Dan Wheeler, costumes by Cathy Crane and make-up by Christine Stahl) merge together to create a surrounding where issues of truth and fidelity explode. Within the safety of community and church, treachery and murder are exposed and hidden, the fa├žade then quickly restored.The play runs for two weeks Thursday, September 24 through Sunday, October 4.
