"County Line" is the world premiere of Ann Arbor playwright, David Wells', Edgerton Award Winning Play. The script was also selected for the National New Play Network Showcase in San Diego, but received its first appearance at Performance Network's Fireside New Play Festival in 2012. "County Line" is the the whimsical and profound story of 17-year-old Lois' journey after the arrest of her father. Lois is sentenced to the strict confines of a foster home run by Tanya - a woman who is not your typical guardian and owns the County Line Truck Stop & Travel Center. In this coming-of-age story, Lois encounters both her first look at the subtle terrors one human can inflict upon another and a lifeline to humanity that will ultimately save her.

Regular tickets are $22 - $41 with discounts for students, seniors, children under the age of 16, and military and can be purchased online at performancenetwork.org or by calling the box office at 734-663-0681.
