The Story

A major theatrical event—a new play by Missouri’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson. When murder roars through a small Missouri town, Ruth Hoch begins her own quest to find truth and honesty amid small town jealousies, religion, greed and lies. This tornado of a play propels you through its events like a page-turning mystery.
