This gripping play unearths the wreckage of war and celebrates the women who navigate and survive the most hostile of circumstances. Their lives set on a nightmarish detour by civil war, the captive wives of a Liberian rebel officer form a hardscrabble sisterhood, drawing on their reserves of defiance, wit, and compassion to ask the question: when the fog of battle lifts, could a different destiny emerge? A chilling, humanizing, and surprisingly funny portrait of survival, transformation, and renewal.

The sun has set over the neighborhoods, government buildings and American backyards everywhere. And for some reason, this time it seems to have gone down for good The Governor appeals for calm, and a news team is on the way. Their report: someone left the lawn sprinklers on; someone's horse is on the loose; a seashell is lying in the grass; dogs are running by. With little information and nothing new to share, newscasters attempting to reckon with the situation search for some guidance or meaning as the possibly endless night wears on and on.

Jack and his beanstalk, Cinderella and her slippers, a Baker and his bride....and a witch with a curse. Wishes may be magically granted, but traditional happily-ever-afters are scarce in this sophisticated fairy-tale mash-up, as characters discover that every wish -- and every action taken -- can have far-reaching consequences.
