"A Great Big Hole In the Ground"

Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Region 3

Julie, who works in a lab, is surprised at the sudden appearance of her estranged mother, May. May comes bearing a mysterious shard of bone and years of grief and denial about the Oklahoma City Bombing. The play comes to a head as Julie realizes that perhaps she isn't as okay wit her life as she thought. A Great Big Hole In The Ground touches on people's relations to their grief, and how it can be good and bad.
