RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway,

Harley and Jennie Woodson are a quirky elderly couple who live above their combination general store/post office in Wallace, Ohio. Business is not too good; they are just about the last folks left in Wallace. There has been a dreadful toxic waste accident, along the lines of Love Canal, and the dirt around them is deadly. Jennie wants to pack up and move out like everyone else, but Harley won't leave even though he is dying of cancer. To him living on a toxic waste site is preferable to moving to Erie, Pennsylvania, to live with his son. Jennie realizes that it is no use and she stays in Wallace to die with her beloved husband.
