About this show

"My friend, Paul, in one of his better known gospels, makes the argument that, that, indeed, everything will be known to us. That one day, we will be known to ourselves. I'm not so pessimistic." At the cold and muddy edges of a ruined lake, Gerry, an actor, and Royall, a writer, engage in a battle of whiskey and wits, but only one knows the true end game. Tense and precise, the play follows the unexpected and dramatic events of a single night between strangers. In this world premiere production, the actors will alternate roles nightly, illuminating the psychological differences of and between each character as well as within the story itself. Neff's swift, muscular dialogue hammers at the moral constructs of our society and does so with a breathless, unceasing tension that begs the question, "Given the choice, given the chance... what would you really do?"
