Evenings on the prairie are relatively quiet for Peg, a recently widowed woman in rural Wisconsin who still cooks for two. Which doesn't go to waste whenever Ryan, a dear friend with a troubled past, pays her a visit. However, after noticing her husband's toolbox is missing, she places a call to the local authorities-- unwittingly setting off a series of events that will forever reverberate through the small community. In a divided country where the lines separating family, friend, and foe have been further blurred in the wake of a global pandemic, Tony Award winner Robert Falls and Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman masterfully untangle a complex, humanistic yarn the Chicago Sun-Times calls "an engrossing work of intense melancholy, filled with sympathy for its characters, and for the country." SWING STATE contains gun shots, violence and themes of self harm and suicide. This production is suggested for ages 14 and up. The run time of this show is one hour and forty-five minutes.
