Jeff Talbott’s powerful new play is a gritty look into the life of Baylen, an honest, hard-working gravedigger who sweats and bleeds to support his small family. He has it all in his hands: love, death, and dirt. But when society begins to crush him, which one will he hold onto?

Love and Hate. Rich and Poor. It all ends up in the dirt.

 

SENSATIONAL! TERRIFIC ACTING. YOU’LL BE MESMERIZED BY IT.
– Peter Filichia, BroadwayRadio
