Playwright Lee Blessing used the real-life case of Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State football coach who was accused of assaulting young boys. The testimony of an assistant coach who saw Sandusky in a shower with a youngster was crucial in obtaining a conviction and also in exposing a coverup aimed at protecting the fabled college football program.

In Blessing’s play, an angsty young coach who can’t help but tell his wife the mind-blowing news that he saw a legendary offensive coordinator in a compromising situation with a naked lad.

This confession is the catalyst in transforming the wife, Mia, into the play’s agent of change. Through Mia, Blessing imagines blunt and well-articulated scenarios that contain consequences and choices for someone who holds volatile knowledge.
