The OBIE-Award winning Clubbed Thumb presents the world premiere of What Then, by Rinne Groff. Hal Brooks directs.
Set in the not too distant future, What Then is about saving a struggling family and a struggling planet. The lake outside is becoming a dust bowl and the family inside is becoming a powderkeg. Diane tells her husband Tom that she has switched careers from accountant to architect, but only when she's asleep. She is building an amazing housing complex that will remove the toxicity in the soil and provide housing to "low-to-no-income" occupants. Tom is a corporate powerbroker who may be responsible for the lake -- and a lot more. His juvenile delinquent daughter Sallie and her border-hopping boyfriend with a name no one bothers to try to get right will resort to anything -- even stealing blood -- to live on the right side of the tracks. Are they really moving into Diane's dream housing project?
