This addition to the author's Jericho, R.I. cycle of plays that also includes The Octette Bridge Club, A Distance from Calcutta, ...And Fat Freddy's Blues and Down by the Ocean, is a bonanza of strong roles for young actors. Love, betrayal and vengeance invade a small town in 1911. Ann is jilted by ambitious Frank so he can marry fiery Carolyn. Carolyn's former fiancee Brian commits suicide on the day they wed. A year later, Frank is climbing the political ladder, his best friend John is courting Ann even though she still loves Frank, and Carolyn is deeply shaken by the sudden reappearance of a former lover Brian's twin brother Jeffrey. To avenge his brother, Jeffrey torments Carolyn until a compromise frees them from the ghosts of the past. As 1913 approaches, Ann finds fulfillment as a teacher and reluctantly accepts John while a melancholy Carolyn bids farewell to Jeffrey as the train pulls out of Riverpoint.
