What would you do if you found that what you know to be true is at odds with what everyone else thinks?  Is learning too much a crime?

After a highly successful run of his enigmatic The Falling Man in 2004, James Peterson returns to the Thoresen stage with a tale of conflicting realities, a thought provoking piece that will challenge your willingness to take too much for granted.

A new play from Jim Peterson, author of The Falling Man,
produced at R-MWC in 2004.

Auditions: February 1 & 3; 7:00 p.m.

in Thoresen Theatre.
