The play follows Denny and Claire who have retired to the wilds of Central America, where they quickly discover that things are not as they were expecting, neither in their relationship, nor in their new property. A mysterious mound is discovered by a pair of archaeologists who arrive on the scene, making a shattering discovery which will challenge all their beliefs about what is ever truly real and what is imagined.


Denny Newhart, M: Fifties, energetic and optimistic. He truly embraces his newly found retirement and wants to find the real meaning of escape. Denny is married to Claire and adores his wife, but his idea of retirement isn’t quite living up to her expectations. CAST

Claire Newhart, F: Fifties, active and imaginative. She is, quite possibly, in the middle of an existential crisis. Claire’s view of paradise doesn’t include lack of communication with the known world and she’s not 100% sure retirement was the right answer for her. CAST
