Abstract:

The setting is the local liquor store in Patrick Henry Lake, Tennessee, a sleepy mountain town suddenly jarred awake by the return of Leif, an ex-Marine whose father was once the most powerful man in the area. He was also killed by lightning while having a tryst with the mother of Leif's girlfriend, and the effect of that tragic event is still felt. The mother and her husband are now hopeless alcoholics, and their daughter is committed to their care. But it is the arrival of an outsider, a mysterious prophet-like stranger named Mickey, which brings the action to focus, and illuminates the shared experiences which tie together all the various, and disparate, characters who people the play. And, in the end, it is also Mickey, through his unsuspected involvement in Leif's own past, who impels matters to their inevitable, and dramatically moving, conclusion.
