Synopsis: A prescient meditation on human resilience from the playwright and screenwriter of last year’s Academy Award-winning film The Whale. Set inside a small office in southern Idaho, two men meet to go through the confusing and often maddening application process for a loan. But while facts like income and interest are seemingly cut and dry, relationships are not so simple. The complex choices of modern life are soon brought to the fore in this new play that vibrates with intense urgency.
