It is fall in the midwest, Curt a cop who wants to be a park ranger, is the lead officer in taking down a Naughty but Nice ‘massage parlor.’ The combined efforts of Curt and bumbling partner Doug fail at doing what appears to be an easy job. As the play unfolds we watch Curt and Sandy, a young masseuse from Naughty but Nice strive to identify themselves as something more than their history has dictated. Rebecca Gilman has written a beautiful play of survival and saver. The question Gilman asks is who is ultimately needing to be saved? The leaves have fallen in Wisconsin and the cold has set in as Gilman’s characters find change is inevitable and time doesn’t stop.

“An inspired, thought-provoking production full of nuanced, heartfelt performances. It’s a moving ride, sometimes funny, sometimes explosive.” – Emmylou Diaz, Writer/Producer, ​Charmed
