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.

It is 1944 and Robert Oppenheimer and his brother, Frank, are frantically working to beat the Nazis to the nuclear bomb. With difficulties mounting and growing concern over his Communist associations, Robert has no time to think about the consequences of his "gadget." But in 1945, when they finally see the power of their new weapon, the two men are torn apart in a battle over whether or not to use it, and Robert is forced to choose between his conscience and his ambition, his brother and his bomb.

Two teenagers 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.
