Why See ?


Lydia's dream is to invigorate the Rust Belt town she lives in. However, when a whip-smart entrepreneur co-opts her scheme a fierce and delicate rivalry is born. As a fierce battle for the towns very soul ensues the occupants are left questioning who they are and where their beloved town is headed.

Greg Pierce is one of the most exciting playwrights of our time with many of his plays having already featured on the off-Broadway circuit throughout the last decade. His previous work includes Slowgirl, The Landing, Her Requiem and Kid Victory.
