Additional Info

An investigator grills four hyper-respectable citizens after receiving an anonymous letter describing the disappearance of a mysterious Boy who had presumably appeared among them. A strange story emerges as one by one, the four break down and confess their relationship to the Boy. The denouement is startling and shocking -- a shameful crime has been committed, though no one knows precisely what it is nor what the penalty may be. Boy on Blacktop Road and The Stallion Howl may be joined to make a full theatre evening, or may also be performed separately. If together, there is almost a complete overlap of cast.
