The summer of 1966 was hot and dry in the small Texas town of Idol Hill. The Vietnam War raged on and racial tensions were high. The play is part love story and part ghost story. A beautiful woman comes to town and stirs up secrets from the past. Multiple overlapping storylines weave a tale of heroes and lies, love and transformation.
