The town of Gompers is on a fast-track to despair. The Steel Mill has closed. The town is destitute. And its citizens have lost all faith. But suddenly a golden greyhound appears under a tree, a blue Jesus is spotted walking on the river and a gambling boat is heading their way… Adam Rapp’s exceptional new play, performed by a cast of 10 actors, is an explosive mix of ferocious comedy, gritty sensitivity and bold lyricism.Adam Rapp
