The play is set in a small, dying Oklahoma town, where 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.

Appearing in the cast are James Houston of Bound Brook as Sam Rogers; John Thompson of Piscataway  as Jack; Arielle Beth of Livingston as Ainsley; Heather Denges of Dunellen as Dorothy; James Jones of Metuchen as Tom; Lewis Decker of Millington as Willard Sprague; Michael Stratton of Union City as Les; David Bronovicki of Piscataway as Glen; Elizabeth Stamat of East Brunswick as Janice; Frank Lankey, Jr. of Edison as Del; and John W. Kennedy of Chatham as Lee.

The stage manager for this production will be Andrea Polselli of Monmouth Junction.

Additional crew includes, Ed Pearson of Middlesex, Elyse Halloran of Somerset (lighting design), Emily Russoniello of Somerset (set design), Diane Teichman and Evan Hutnick of Bridgewater (props) Hilary Pearson of Middlesex (special makeup design), and David Bronovicki of Piscataway (stage combat).
