Welcome to Keene, New Hampshire

In this modern-day response to Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, a Mexican-American parking officer narrates the daily lives of the residents of Keene, NH, while being hounded by local alt-right/anti-government activists. She introduces us to the Korean owner of the only Chinese restaurant in town, the local attorney and tennis coach with a dark past, and the musician who needs to be seen for who they truly are and not the daughter their mother insists they will always be. “Welcome to Keene, NH” is a three-act play telling the fictional story of the encroachment of guns, heroin, and the alt-right on a real American small town.
