A double volume containing two interrelated plays that focus on the modern-day descendants of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. In Lewiston, an aging descendant of Meriwether Lewis sells off her family’s land as she becomes increasingly convinced that her family’s past is a curse. But when an unexpected visitor enters the picture, she is left to consider if there is any good left in the world. In Clarkston, a young descendant of William Clark has made the journey out west from his home in Connecticut, anxious to find meaning in his own history. Faced with the reality of the diminished towns that used to make up America’s shining frontier, his faith in his future and the future of the country itself begins to falter.
