Dublin, Missouri. County seat of Chosen County. Home to a thriving cheese plant, a welcoming church, and a surprisingly good community theatre. Home to the Hoch and Bates families, their friends and neighbors, and the occasional visitor. A place for community, nostalgia, and middle-American values.

Wilder's Our Town meets Shaw's Saint Joan in this country-noir story about how friendship, loyalty, and willful denial prevent us from confronting the truth.
Setting: Summer in a small town on the cusp of the new millennium.
