Floyd Toone's death
brought no peace. Even before they can get him in the ground, his sister
Lona and niece Darla discover that his house has been broken into. But
Floyd's house is not the only thing broken into or just broken in this
family. A funny and touching play about coming out (and staying in the
closet) in Texas, and how the right music and the right moves can keep
you strong even when it's your heart that's breaking.

embark on an impulsive motorcycle journey cross country. But what begins
as two young activists naive defiance against their parents, high
school, and you know, the whole gun-loving-politically unstable-
human-rights -denying--globally-warming up by the second- screwed--up
world!, soon becomes an eye opening adventure where Rain and Zoe
discover that the true danger in this world might just be growing up ...
and each other. Full of theatrical magic, Rain and Zoe is a race to
regain the possibility of change in a world whose days are numbered
without it ... no matter what the cost.
