The ubiquitous blue tarp provides the backdrop for this comic play about a Maine native defending his right to do as he’s always done and a woman “from away” who wants to change things and knows just how to do it. This light-hearted examination of home, place, progress, and the way like “should” be was first written and developed for PTC’s Northern Writes New Play Festival; named Best Play for the State of Maine in the 2013 Clauder New England Playwright Competition. WORLD PREMIER!
