In Letts’ Pulitzer Prize finalist, a middle-aged Nebraskan man named Ken Carpenter, to be played by Birney, suddenly finds he has lost his faith—prompting him to go on a wild adventure. “Along the way he encounters a world vastly different from his own, filled with chance meetings and romantic encounters that shake him to the core,” describe production notes from Second Stage. “From the playwright of August: Osage County, comes a fascinating exploration into what happens when we lose our belief system and the characters that come into our lives on the path to a meaningful existence.”
