Sisyphus Rots by Key Billman

Birdie is the first in years to move to the tiny town of Lonebrook, where little ever changes and no one seems to want it to. Locke is a lifetime resident of the town trapped in uneasy stasis. When they explore the town’s singular oddity together, they happen upon two strange siblings for whom the comforts of routine have long since turned sour. A one-act play of the Midwestern gothic, Sisyphus Rots explores the power of shame, the fear of the unknown, and the innate need for connection. This event is free and open to the public.
