"Writing plays is the way I connect with the world and follow ideas to their inevitable conclusion. Every play I write is a way to find out something about who or what I am and about the world I see around me—to find out if words can really ever 'get at what they are trying to say'."

The Story:

Judith comes home to find her husband in shock. Dan has had an automobile accident from which he miraculously walked away without a scratch. He should have died, and now he is looking for a rational universe. While new friends are visiting, a strange woman shows up. She is Mary, the wife of the man in the other vehicle. It soon becomes clear that she and her husband were not as ordinary as they first seem, and the mystery that surrounds them includes a bag full of cash and a secret code. Mary disappears after she is asked too many questions, and then…   the cops show up.
