The Clearing is the story of two brothers bound together by a terrible secret they've been hiding for 18 years. The Ellis family is in many ways a typical American family. But the love they share is intense, all-consuming, even obliterating. When a handsome stranger inserts himself into this tight-knit circle, mother and sons must discover if they have the courage to shatter the bond that has kept them unmoving for two decades and risk the unknown. The Clearing is a play about the difference between loving someone and living for them by an exciting new theatrical voice.
