It’s 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan had abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers that he founded with his friends. Now he’s returned to small-town Idaho with no word of where he’s been, and everything has changed. One friend is gone, the other – his former lover – has traded idealism for realism, and their new-ish co-worker is emotionally invested in a paper now filled with personal ads instead of perspectives.
Hunter’s play is a “compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives” (New York Times) desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.
A MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient, playwright Samuel D. Hunter is best known for works including A Bright New Boise, The Whale, The Healing, and A Great Wilderness.
