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).
