in a stand of dying trees by Shannon TL Kearns

Directed by Emily England

In this new play by Uprising’s Artistic Director Shannon TL Kearns, big city idealism and small town realities intersect. Ben and Amanda love their town. They love their neighbors. Sure, they sometimes disagree, but they are comfortable. When Liam, Ben’s former college friend, comes to town on a campaign to get people to “vote blue” their idyllic life is threatened. Can people remain friends even when they disagree? How is it for transgender folks who live in rural areas? And who has the right to defend themselves?

Show runs: 8-23 November

Performances will be at The Off Leash Art Box: 4200 East 54th St. Minneapolis, MN 55417
