Additional Info

In this very dark two character play, Silas Quiller and Bert Astor, friends and neighbors, are on the roof putting up lightning rods with a storm coming. As Bert tries to persuade Silas to get down off the roof before the storm arrives, we gradually discover how they got up there, and what nightmares lurk in their bloody and horrifying past.
