I worked on the original production of this play, as well as, other plays by this playwright.  It is an amazing play that provokes the audience to rethink how relationships are formed.  Set in the great smoky mountains during WWII it is a challenge to the actors, the designers, and the audience.  My love for this playwright lives on.
