A man lost in his life drives across the American West with his stepdaughter—a young woman at the beginning of hers. He’s trying to make peace with the ghosts of his past; she’s just trying to survive.  This WNC premiere tells their compelling and complex story, as they test how much they can trust each other—or whether they can ever trust each other again. Starring John Hall and Audrey Wells.

After the performance on Sunday, March 8, a talk-back will be held with representatives from Mountain Child Advocacy Center and Our Voice. Literature from these agencies will also be available in the 35below lobby. Due to the serious themes of the play, Great Falls is not recommended for audiences under the age of 16.
