    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
