You, as a sneek-peak audience member, will get a thorough view of this stunning, adult-language script. (We’ll say that again – adult language. Kind of like Tarantino. Just saying.) And we need you to be present on November 3rd, because your input can help shape the play, and we’re curious to see what questions and impressions stand out to viewers.


Frank is a Gulf War veteran and police officer who moonlights as a security guard to make ends meet. Safira was a shoplifter. It was dark. Frank thought she had a gun. She didn't. Now Frank's the guy who shot an unarmed teenager, with ramifications for his wife, his best friend, Safira’s father, and a media spin doctor looking for a story. While he waits for the grand jury, Safira haunts Frank every night and soon she begins to make terrifying demands of him.

This stunning psychological drama explores how human beings maneuver through earth-shattering tragedy, with intense focus on the human side of a situation gone horribly wrong. While challenging you to question your own preconceptions of good and bad, whatever they may be, this stirring and emotional play transcends predictable notions on both sides of the political divide, drawing humanity to the forefront.


Featuring Megan Murphy Chambers as "Josie," David Compton as "Zell," Alexandra Huff as "Zero," Carey Van Driest as "Darlene," Nathaniel McIntyre as "Frank," and R. Alex Murray as "Dumptruck."
