In the style of Thornton Wilder’s OUR TOWN, KING’S RIVER tells the intertwining stories of individuals living in the fictional town of “King’s River,” a small town in the American South. From the struggles of a jazz trio to the yearning of an eager young marine to the struggles for love and survival – these are the stories of a restless America, these are the stories of KING’S RIVER.
