In the heat of a scorching Joliet summer, three malnourished boys in a dilapidated basement make a very shady business transaction that will affect the world in more ways than they fathom. Joanie Schultz (Circle Theatre's Stone Cold Dead Serious) directs the Midwest premiere of Adam Rapp's (Red Light Winter) 2002 apocalyptic play.

FEATURING
Bryson Engelen, Ryan Heindl, Paul Myers and Bries Vannon
