Quotes & Highlights

_Sand in the Air _was a semifinalist in the 2008 Next Generation Playwrights Contest.


For the first time in its 65 year history, the Morgan-Wixson Theatre is choosing to premiere an original play by an experienced and up-and-coming playwright, Brian Raine. Brian has written several plays and a winner of the 2007 Project StageLight for __In the Name of the Son, __and a finalist in the 2009 Tennessee Williams Literary Festival for __Upon the Midnight.


When a young doctor in a remote factory town on the Tex-Mex border is accused of sexual misconduct in his consulting rooms he learns that corporate politics can override the course of justice. With satirical humor, the play explores the ever-increasing limits and distortions of personal freedom in a world manipulated by corporate and political controls. 

Sand in the Air was inspired by an actual Texas court case.
