An Off-Broadway success and winner of the Vernon Rice Award, this highly imaginative and affecting play is a portrait of Eldritch, a once-prosperous mining town in Missouri – a place where the rhythm of life and its cruelties hides behind a facade of morality. A man is murdered and a woman tried for it, lovers come together and fall apart, bored teenagers search for adventure and escape, and families hide conflicts behind closed doors. Their stories blend together seamlessly in a nonlinear collage of relationships, events, and secrets.
