Amber is a long way from home and starting a new life. An Australian in the Midwest, she finds herself gravitating towards Erin, the widowed housewife who lives next door. The arrogance of it is a play about the ways in which we reckon with, and begin to heal from our past.

This production contains violence, self-harm, and themes of emotional and physical abuse.
