Overview


Synopsis

The play is set in an impoverished Catholic mission in rural New Mexico where a group of disparate individuals gather due to an accident at a nearby nuclear facility. Included among them are a burnt out college professor, his much younger wife, the elderly parish priest, his brilliant half-Indian foster son, a middle-aged art gallery owner and her much younger boytoy lover. Confined within the church, they begin to reveal their stories to each other – their trials and tribulations, their hopes and fears and the personal crises which have brought them not only to this place but to turning points in their lives
