Genre: Drama
by David Ozanich, directed by Jared Coseglia

In a desolate expanse of New Mexico desert stands one of the most significant icons of contemporary art...400 stainless steel poles whose peaks form an even plane designed to attract lightning. Two young lovers from New York travel with their divorced parents in search of a better future to THE LIGHTNING FIELD where the real explosion is what occurs within its visitors.

The constant shifting and re-definition of the American family is at the core of THE LIGHTNING FIELD's story. In a world where marriage and relationships no longer mean what they did a generation ago, the play explores the new American family. How did we get here? With the
looming possibility of a marriage proposal, a gay New York couple Sam and Andy make a pilgrimage to Walter De Maria's world famous art installation, The Lightning Field. When they realize that their relationship mirrors that of their divorced parents, the resulting storm is an explosion of startling and raw emotions.
