THE STORY: When murder roars through a small Missouri town, Ruth Hoch begins her own quest to find truth and honesty amid small town jealousies, religion, greed and lies. This tornado of a play propels you through its events like a page-turning mystery.
“…[Wilson’s] best work since Fifth of July…An intriguing, prismatic and thoroughly engrossing depiction of contemporary small-town life with a murder mystery at its core…a splendid evening of theater…” —Variety.

“…fascinating…a densely populated, unpredictable little world…[filled with] intriguing characters who touch each other’s lives through an elaborate series of connections…Above all, there’s the language…You could go to the theater night after night and never hear language so supple.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
