RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

Trouble starts when Teresa tells her brother that this guy did something to her with his dog in bed. Nobody seems to know exactly what, but they do know that somebody's got to pay. So what is 'The Dig Problem'? It's the wrong thing said to the wrong person. From then on it's a chain reaction of misplaced passions and galloping sentences leading to deadly conclusions in a darkly funny play about men, women, ghosts, sex, betrayal, psychic power and the realization that when you destroy the natural world in Act One, you better look out in Act Two.
