Well staged production of a new play that contrasts an early 20th Century murder in Nelson County, Virginia, and the aftermath of the Viet Nam War. Tipped a bit toward melodrama at one time.

interesting idea but difficult to execute moving back and forth between centuries...playwright tried to too much with an overly long script that actors could not quite reach...less dialogue and more acting would have helped.

A very intriguing story, very heavy subject matter delivered effectively by the actors. Glad we attended!
