“In a ranch house deep in Texas Hill Country, a once tight-knit group of friends reunites to bury one of their own,“ state production notes. “But as they look backward through their lives, it becomes clear they’ve lost more than just their old pal. In this haunting new play from Anne Washburn, the boundaries between then and now grow disarmingly blurry as these estranged friends confront their slippery past.“

The production features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, sound design by Leah Gelpe and original music by Daniel Kluger. Production stage manager is Megan Schwartz Dickert.

Tickets may be purchased online via PHnyc.org, by phone at (212) 279-4200 and in person at the Ticket Central Box office, 416 West 42nd St., Manhattan.
