By Miranda Rose Hall
Directed by Kym Pappas
In this triptych of love, lust, and domestic terrorism, a joyous romp through lesbian erotic fiction collides with one of the darkest hours in U.S. history. This thrilling new play from the author of The Hour of Great Mercy (Winner: Outstanding New Play, 2019 San Diego Critics Circle Awards) is a wild ride through the heights of fantasy and the depths of horror to confront a country at war with itself, and discover how to heal after tragedy.
