The Usual Place, 100 So. Maryland Pkwy., Las Vegas, NV 89101

In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward humor and deep truth, this strange, compassionate new play asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us?  “So I ask you.  No, I beg you… Change. Somebody. Please. Change.”
