Multiple tales converge at the Darress Theatre in Boonton, New Jersey, with the quirky building an integral character in each story. A murder rocks the quiet town; an everyday man blossoms; an ex-con adjusts to life after prison; an improbable romance ignites; and a poignant play, "Cable's Out," weaves its way through the novel, from first rehearsal to closing night's curtain call.
Meet the dramatic players of Darress Theatre. The narrator, Ryan, a part-time actor in a dead-end job, weighs the responsibility of caring for a fading parent against the lure of an exotic newcomer. Dolly is the lovable Texan who keeps the Darress going by force of personality. George, a past-his-prime star, reaches for one last brass ring. And meet the Darress Theatre itself, old, odd, and worth saving because it is like no other.
