WORK. DIG. GROW UP.
GROW OLD. THE END.
In a hot dry land, where life is nothing but diggin’ and eatin’ and prayin’ and sleepin’, there lives a lad who’s astonished by the arrival of his, uh… manhood.
The men of the town laugh at his questions. His ma keels over. His pa’s advice won’t do. Did the devil get in him? Or is it just the lure of what’s– over thar?

“Smith has a strong voice and paints the rural waste-land in intriguingly mythic tones… a finely executed New Georges production.” – The Village Voice
“The style of the production, under the imaginative directorial reins of Sarah Cameron Sunde, is broad, but with a serious undercurrent humorously expressed. Performances perfectly capture the script’s ideas. Far out!” — The Epoch Times
“Lad’s excitement is hilariously depicted…[a] funny and imaginative play.” – New Theater Corps
