Faye Garrit believes in hiding things. That's why after an incident with her abusive ex-baseball-player husband, she covers her black eye with makeup and lies low at an off-season resort, seeking to ease her creeping sense of aimlessness with pills and people. But everyone seems to reflect her stifled longing, from her serious teenage daughter, who struggles to reconcile first love with faith, to her friend Jimmy, who avoids the subject of love altogether as a gay man in 1960s Missouri. Faye can't hide forever, from her dangerous husband or her own desires, and she may not be able to control what happens when she's found. William Inge deploys the fierce empathy for his characters that makes him an essential American playwright in this passionate, newly-discovered drama.

SET: Single set, a cottage at an off-season resort in 1966.

NOTES: Some adult content
