The Trappist


     Twelve years after high school, Cynthia Raker, disfigured since birth and cruelly tormented throughout her school years and beyond, is confronted by two of her past persecutors as she works, hidden away as a maintenance worker on a local golf course. Faced with having to relive the suicide of her best friend during her sophomore year, Raker fights for a realistic understanding of self forgiveness and the unrealistic expectations of a society that has only brought her pain and trauma.  At times humorous, at times heartbreaking, this complex drama brings together six highly talents actors to create a world both realistic and deeply distressing.  Adult language and complex themes makes this play appropriate only for discerning adults and sophisticated teens.
