Abstract:The play follows a prosperous family in an Oklahoma rural town. Garret Bedford is the owner of a large oil company. The town was founded on the Bedfords’ wealth, therefore the residents regard Garret as a saint. However, Garret is an alcoholic, abusive man who has an adulterous affair with his sister’s daughter, Eliza. The affair turns out to be a setup for Eliza and her husband, Hector, to exploit her uncle and blackmail him into giving them ten million dollars. When the play opens, Garret’s other sister, Sally, had recently died from cancer. Sally’s son, Ayden, an army soldier stationed in Iraq, returns to town for her funeral. There, he is confronted by Garret’s son, Billy, who happened to stumble upon a photograph of Garret’s and Eliza’s affair. Ayden gets caught up in a family crisis, which ultimately leads to more secrets. With the family on the verge of social destruction, Ayden attempts to unravel the mystery of Eliza’s notorious town reputation and hopefully find a way to end his family’s conflict.
