An exciting new play by Richard C. Washer premieres as part of the FIRST DRAFT at THE ROSE New Play Reading Series.  FREE ADMISSION!

Don has retreated into a reclusive life in the country with his protective wife. The arrival of a young woman with questions and demands of her own threatens to disrupt their lives and disturb the remains of a troubled past. Weaving poetry, lyricism and humor, this story explores the boundaries of imagination, and the far-reaching power the past can have over our lives.
