Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Rural Florida, September 1960. Young revival preacherman Bo Harrison sweeps his lovely bride, Ruthie, up into the tree house he's built as a surprise for their wedding night, unaware that the fury of an infamous storm is rolling in from the gulf. Ruthie, recently paralyzed from the waist down, tentatively finds her way in their "honeymoon suite in the sky"—and in the mystery, wonder and promise of her role as a newlywed. The human heart's wild longing for union in conflict with its abiding need for self-preservation fuels the sweet storm between lover and beloved in this intimate tale of marriage, faith and love.
"Like the best country music, Scott Hudson's SWEET STORM benefits from restraint. A gentle wisp of a love story…blends a fantastical setting with a longing for spiritual and carnal rapture [and] ends on a stirring note…SWEET STORM stays with you like the freshness following a summer cloudburst." —NY Times. "The script is remarkably controlled without feeling slick…well-reasoned and subtle. SWEET STORM is utterly strange and unexpected, but it also feels reassuringly solid." —Variety. "A sweet evening of theater." —NYTheatre.com.
