"Extols the virtues of an America solidly rooted in mid western values.... A comedy in the best sense, it celebrates the biological urge to survive despite adversity and affirms the triumph of love over fallibility." Pittsburgh Press.
Winner! 1984 Drama Logue Critics Award for Outstanding Achievement in Theatre.
This haunting, unusual play was created with members of the Illusion Theatre of Minneapolis, using their real life stories and those of their families to create a richly textured portrait of small town America from 1911 to the present. The play follows five families through three generations.
