This long form poem with humor, heart, and music tells the story of a man standing before his town asking them for forgiveness after he has made a deal with a mysterious stranger on their behalf. More than a recounting of events, this piece both engages and implicates the audience in determining the man’s fate.

Our annual reading series returns, featuring full-length readings of fresh new plays written at the farm by members our 2018 Working Farm writers group. Beer, wine and curated bites from SPACE chefs will follow each reading. Admission is free, registration is required.
