April 5, 2024 – April 7, 2024

Scene Dock Theatre (SCD)


New Works Festival Year 3, showcasing the emerging voices of the School’s graduating MFA Dramatic Writing students.


It’s 110 degrees. Everything is seemingly on fire. A global pandemic destabilizes and divides communities. Mike and his family find themselves in the last place they want to be: the Central California Valley for his wife’s medical residency. Mike is left to unpack his new life and create a home for his family, but he starts to self-destruct. His daughter gets sick, his marriage becomes strained and his relationship with his mother may be lost forever. It seems that there might be only one person who can help: a mural of “Heartthrob Jesus” painted on the wall.
