A Gentler Place

by Jeff Carter
directed by Tamera Izlar

Winner of the biennial peace play competition at Goshen College, A Gentler Place is a thought-provoking play that attacks, uproots, and threatens to expose a buried secret nestled deep within a rural township. This forgotten tragedy will push the new inhabitants to uncover the peaceful fa├žade “a gentler place” could not hide. Within the play, an unsuspecting couple must wrestle internally as they choose between community acceptance, justice, vengeance, and morality. As they struggle with a community’s unspoken approval of vigilantism, they unwittingly urge the audience to ponder and choose as well.
