Studio Theatre
Directed by C. Michael Wright

Featuring Peter Reeves and Sara Zientek

A teenager flees to her uncle's jungle retreat in Costa Rica to avoid the results of a potentially fatal accident at a house party. As the reclusive uncle gets reacquainted with his impulsive niece, after a nine-year absence and a self-imposed exile, startling details about both of their pasts slowly unfold.

Here is an edgy new work, from a strong, emerging playwright, about owning your past - and getting on with your life.
