ABOUT THE PLAY:

In a small town library in the Deep South, the two librarians share an unlikely close friendship, despite being on opposite sides of the gay marriage debate and culture war. But when a young runaway, global events, and the Sweep of Human History come crashing through their front door, what will it take for that friendship to survive?
