A young man, Michael Stouffer, disillusioned by divorce and a failed academic career, is tricked into returning to his hometown after a self-willed separation of nearly eighteen years to face an emotionally charged encounter with his past.
An enthralling tour de force, this award-winning play deals with issues of love and loss, faith and doubt, the strength of family ties, and the possibility of personal redemption.
