From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes the incredibly funny and deeply touching adventure of Macon and Bess, two mail-order brides lured to the West for the promise of a better life through marriage to men they’ve never met. This amazing journey follows the two women through their friendship for the next 25 years. Beth Henley illustrates a rarely seen portrait of our American mythology as told through the women who lived it.
“Abundance percolates with dark laughter…this is its author’s most provocative play in years” — The New York Times
“Henley has an unmistakable talent for making human desperation seem funny, complex and unpredictable.” - Village Voice
