Synopsis

When a serial killer goes on a gruesome rampage in Ella’s small hometown of Vero Beach, Florida, she’s called up from her busy career in the Miami police force to help apprehend him. At home, she’s confronted with the life she left behind: her pregnant and struggling sister, her scared young niece, who like Ella, is desperate to find a life somewhere else, and the dark events of her childhood that she’s tried to forget. As the murders grow more horrific and the small community is frozen by fear, Ella realizes she has to confront the events of her dark past in order to stop him.

From the Press

“This is something real, something that’s actually happening”—that will stay with you long after the shock has faded. Jennifer Rumberger’s new play is one of these stories.”
