"Heléna (Arianda) lost her husband in World War I, and with him, her financial security," press notes state. "Struggling to maintain her way of life, she becomes part of an illicit underworld. Heléna manages to separate her secret life from her public persona — that is until she crosses paths with a man who has the power to expose and ruin her."
Directed by Kate Whoriskey, the production continues through April 27.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
