Theresa Rebeck's expressionistic melodrama set in the waning years of the Alaskan Gold Rush tracks the intertwined fates of a gregarious innkeeper, Mathias, his rebellious daughter, Annette, and the misgits of a boomtown gone bust. Hard luck and hunger have brought them together, but when a stranger begins asking questions about the mysterious disappearance of a Chinese prospector, Xiufei, he soon learns that it's every man for himself in this vast, white wilderness, where nothing is quite what it seems, and ghost stories are never taken lightly.

"The Bells...shows Ms. Rebeck to be a gifted writer with an expansive mind, willing to explore old terrain to find new paths. " -The New York Times

The Bells was originally produced by the McCarter Theatre, Princeton, New Jersey in March 2005. Directed by Emily Mann.
