About the Play
Set in Southwest Virginia, the play follows the story of the small town’s most revered doctor, who may just be an identity thief and serial killer. But a local police officer with a tarnished reputation, a reporter who manipulated facts and the doctor’s chief intern, who may be a thief, have pieces of the puzzle. All the while, patients are dying and no one in authority believes the great doctor could be responsible.
