Ben and Tracy, a young couple we have come across in a number of Nigro's plays, appear here on a visit to her father's cabin in the woods, where Tracy is again having trouble sleeping, and Ben's job is to figure out what's bothering her. She's had a dream that she found a dead man in the woods who told her to take off her clothes and covered her with flour on the kitchen table. But that's only part of what's bothering her. She thinks Ben's gotten a letter he isn't telling her about, gone to look for it in his copy of The Epic Of Gilgamish, and found there a troubling story about two people who go to the cedar forest to cut it down. The letter, the trees and the dead man in the woods are all connected, as we learn, when we hear her ask him one disturbing question which shows us what's really on her mind. Another in a series of plays about these characters which includes Seascape With Sharks And Dancer, Things That Go Bump In The Night, Mutability Cantos, and Witch Hollow.
