When you're the p.k. (preacher's kid) at the most rock-ribbed fundamentalist Baptist church in Stonewater, Texas—hey, good luck working on them night moves. Whitney, eighteen years old, is just starting to break free from the religious repression of his conservative town. His longtime friend Carlyle is in the same boat; bewildered by her emerging sexuality and saddled by the demands of her mother's even more imposing faith. Separate crises force these two into a deeper, more dangerous alliance as they try to find breathing space between force-fed religious dogma and a far more complicated world. Jaybird O'Berski directs Lexie Braverman and Matthew Hager in this inaugural production from Aggregate Theatre. —Byron Woods
