Things of Dry Hours is the tale of a man's spiritual awakening and the transforming power of hope, set in Depression-era Alabama. The lives of an African American father and his daugter are thrown into jeopardy when a white factory worker on the run from company police demands sanctuary in their home. With the three of them trapped in a tiny house, the intersections and maneuverings of gender, race, and class are laid bare through playwright Naomi Wallace's riveting poetic language.
