The story of a college student from a rose-scented home in the east who is sitting in a ten-foot circle in the searing sun of a high western desert. Why is the Indian elder sitting with her through hot days and cold nights? For what are they waiting? And who is the Indian woman warning her to return to the college town where her mother is spraying roses and her father, a professor, is writing poetry in the silver light of the moon. And what of her brother, restless in a home where you don't get dessert unless you have a doctorate? And her grown sister still sticking chewing gum behind her headboard? Why do their letters call her home? This play, haunting and humorous, celebrates life, family love and the wisdom myths of native Americans. The prize-winning playwright's work has been performed on four continents.
