Ben and Nessa Green sell the house in Connecticut to start over in the new American West. But along with clears skies and open spaces come cultural warfare, runaway kids, guests who won't leave, and a past that never really disappears, either in the ground beneath their feet or inside their own hearts.
Named one of Time magazine's best plays of 2004. "His characters keep hoping they will find a fairly easy way to convert adventure into just the right kind of experience…Mr. Korder knows how to pull us into a scene instantly. He makes the outrageous push at the everyday." —NY Times. "…[a] dark comedy that chronicles the brisk deterioration of a therapist's life and career…some sharply funny writing…snappy and crisply satiric." —Variety. "…[Korder] has an attentive ear for individual voices, and he crafts each scene skillfully enough that it could stand on its own. He works assiduously to link all his characters with a strong theme: the sins of the past and the yearning to improve, as manifested in subplots whose subjects range from home repair to Scientology." —NY Newsday. "Korder's tremendous gifts, for language that crackles with surprise and scenes that build to intense heat, are generously displayed here." —Village Voice. "…wickedly humorous…" —Star-Ledger.
