In the middlest part of the country, where quiet and subtle magic occurs, a family checks into a Holidome. An official and unofficial man drink at the bar. A lone child plays the arcade. The swimming pool licks itself. Front desk checks in. A coyote roams the premises. And a glacier waits for a passing elder.
This fantastical new play re-remembers the yesteryear delight of vacations, our childhood escapes, our adult dreams, and the legends buried in all our structures.
