About the Play:
Successful journalist, Charlie Simpson, has for forty years plied his trade to most of the nation’s important newspapers. Times have changed; the world of newspapers had changed. He now finds himself a stringer on a small town weekly in rural northwest Oregon.
There’s a message waiting for him one Tuesday morning as he sits down at his desk – call his editor.
He has an assignment, not what he’s expecting, like a little league game or the birth of Bonnie Barns’ second set of wins. No, there’s a new lady in town, a painter, an artist. He’s scheduled an interview with her. Charlie knows less than nothing about art, so it seems a stretch for him to be covering this story, or, he worries, is there really a story there? Indeed, there is. Or at any rate he thinks there may be one hellava story. In fact, this may turn out to be the scoop of his professional life.
Something to be said for high drama in the boondocks. And Charlie is in hot pursuit.
