A solo show about settling and esteem, and how easy it is to fall for somebody when they're on death row.
While the country watched the Supreme Court legalize gay marriage nationwide, Thibodaux Louisiana was gripped by the trial of serial killer Brando Gierke. Brando's Dahmer-esque spree claimed the lives of twenty-two men, including Thibodaux's own Tommy Watkins. Jasper Lange, a virgin approaching thirty, dreams of a pilgrim-themed wedding even though he's only ever kissed one man: Tommy Watkins. Confused, lonely and in mourning, Jasper sends a note to Brando, beginning a correspondence that challenges Jasper's perceptions of of esteem and love.
