On a dark, rainy night, Egg Rooks, who lives at the dump, has tracked down Jack Pentecost, the handsome traveling revivalist preacher, who moves from town to town seducing and abandoning young women. Jack has made the mistake of seducing the love of Egg's life, a young waitress named Dorry, and Egg has come to confront him with the consequences of his actions. Pentecost himself is a dark, cynical, guilt-ridden soul, who uses his religious authority to take advantage of the innocent, and he is just about at the end of his rope when Egg shows up. Time and space curve back on themselves and we see Dorry, her seduction, and the terrible aftermath. A dark continuation of Nigro's long series of plays about the Gothic, mythological Pendragon County, Ohio.
