About this show

Set during the Cuban missile crisis, D.W. Gregory's October 1962 shows how a Leave it to Beaver-type town is turned upside down when a convicted child killer returns home. The young man's reappearance has a profound impact on a particular family who tries to integrate him back into the community. However, events start to plague the town, raising doubts as to the rehabilitation of the former felon and signaling the dangers that may lurk beneath the surface of this seemingly safe and secure neighborhood. Previews on the first Thursday and Friday are at 2pm and 8pm; in addition, there are selected Saturday matinees. Contact the theater for details.
