    After spending 12 years in St. Elizabeths Hospital for incompetency, literary lion and ferocious anti-Semite Ezra Pound faces the terrifying prospect of being released. At first, Pound’s treatment by a young psychiatrist, Ann Polley, seems promising, but then the techniques become disturbing and Ann’s true purpose is revealed. Pound explores whether words can be as powerful as actions, whether revenge can be just, and whether sanity is possible when we’re made to see the world as it is and not as we would have it.

    Johnny could be a typical 17-year-old boy, hanging out in his treehouse and dreaming of talking to the beautiful Alana, were it not for his insistence that he has the mind of a 53-year-old. As Johnny persists in his claim that he’s an old man in a teenager’s body and conversations in the treehouse become increasingly peppered by the words of the Bard, Johnny grapples simultaneously with adolescence, love and the mind’s ability to heal from great loss.

    Dottie and Ruth have always kept their lives in order, living each day in rural isolation and contentment. All of that changes when the sheriff drops off a battered teenage girl and asks them to keep her safe. Neither is prepared for the role of savior, and they are even less inclined when they find out the girl is really a boy and the person who almost killed her is her father. This play refers to all the hidden bigotry, prejudice and even brutality a town will turn a blind eye to, until forced to bring those secrets to light and fight back. Learn More
