Overview

The place is Mansfield, Ohio, the time 1976—during the celebration of the nation's bicentennial. As the play begins, a police radio reports the murders of the wife of a leading citizen and her lover, and a team headed by chief detective John Torski immediately swings into action. Suspicion, at first, centers on the victim's husband, a ruthless local businessman named Bim Miller, a classmate and former friend of Torski's—until he too is murdered. Thereafter the fascinating trail of clues leads, step by step, through a series of revealing interrogations which, in the end, piece together a chilling tale of hidden crime, festering guilt, alienation and eventual retribution—violently exacted by a tortured, long-lost son who has never forgiven—or forgotten—the sins of his unloving parents.
