A darkly funny play about healing and the ways in which we as a nation ignore our returning veterans. When U.S. Marine Jenny Sutter (Lily Majekwu) returns from Iraq, she lays down her rifle but isn't ready to pick up her children. Buying some time, Jenny takes a one-way trip to nowhere-a desert community where misfit residents gently nurture her wounded spirit and nudge her back to her own humanity.

Additional cast includes Jenny Avery, Kurt Brocker, Justin James Farley, Lawrence Grimm and Hanna Dworkin.

The production team is made up of Jacqueline and Rick Penrod (set design), J.R. Lederle (lighting design), Kevin O'Donnell (sound design) and Melissa Torchia (costume design).
