Sometimes you can’t dig a hole deep enough to bury memory, or make sense of sorrow. . .
Maddy has a reputation, the two boys have a shovel, and a chorus of drunken angels debates the obvious. The graveyard on the Spruce River Reservation is a stomping ground for the living and the dead; the softly bleeding heart of it’s community. Coo-coosh is a haunting play, close to the bone; poetry and storytelling from the pen of a remarkable dramatist.
