THE WIDOW OF TOM'S HILL
By ALEKS MERILO
Directed by RACHEL BLACK SPAULDING

The worst plague in human history has hit American shores and a small Washington coastal town finds itself under a military quarantine. A young sailor and a 19-year-old widow from opposite sides of the blockade engage in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, putting their lives - and their souls - in the balance.

Award-winning playwright Aleks Merilo weaves a gritty, spellbinding tale that is as relevant now as it was during the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic.

2015 Second Prize Winner of the Julie Harris Playwright Award Competition
