This haunting gem of a play was a crowd pleaser Off-Off Broadway. Set in Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo in front of the snow leopards' pen, it is the story of two sisters from rural West Virginia. Sally has run away from home to find her big sister Claire June, whose life up north she has imagined to be filled with all the promise and hope lacking down south. Even though life in the big city isn't all Sally and C.J. thought it would be, Sally is going to stay and try to make her way. The play may be staged simply and inexpensively and is a treasure trove of scene and monologue material.
"Affecting and carefully crafted. . . . A moving piece of work." - The New York Tribune
