About the show

In Corbin Went's new drama, the Civil War is over, but the scabs it left still itch. More…

A fox stalks the clearing behind the Auberts home, hunting chickens. A love triangle goes horribly wrong, and a family is destroyed. The pieces cannot be put back together: the survivors must build something new. In the absence of God, community, morality, on the edge of the woods that ring with the devil's whistle, two sisters must embrace the power of renouncing everything.

Theatre is Easy

"The uncontrived chemistry between Eilbacher and Abbott makes them an enthralling duo...Corbin Went elegantly plots out a saga across generations of women who couldn’t escape their inherited trauma, yet try their very best to reclaim agency...I see the makings of a great play. Some of the isolated slice-of-life scenes could be trimmed for clarity, but the play makes up for it with twists and turns." Full Review

See it if you're interested in supporting the work of emerging artists who are ambitious, skilled and very brave.

Don't see it if you don't have patience or an interest in bold explorations of gender, family, destiny.
