With unsettling humor, physical inventiveness, and an attempt to find transcendence in even the smallest moments, the play imagines a separate place where sports drills, ritualistic recreation, and an ongoing merging of a personal past, present, and future feels disturbingly necessary and like a kind of home. Writer/director Tina Satter uses her poetically tinged approach to the language and feelings of sports as a textual layer to create a world out on the Plains where two young women re-make family and friendship. Highly regarded experimental performers Pete Simpson, Jess Barbagallo, and Emily Davis are supported with an original score by composer Chris Giarmo.
