Carter, a carpenter with a mysterious past, steps into unknown territory when he accepts a job from Cassie, a graduate of the same high school. Cassie is overseeing the recovery of her older sister Hannah, who was savagely beaten and thrown into a ditch. This random act of violence has created a surreal scene of sibling rivalry around Carter, who is flattered by the attention but knows trouble when he sees it. As Hannah physically improves, her competitive interest in Carter grows. Old resentments, including how each sister handled the illness and recent death of their mother, further antagonize the sisters, to the detriment of all. Sparkling humor punctuates the sharply drawn characterizations in this winning play by the author of Finger Painting in a Murphy Bed, Pieces of the Sky, and other works.
