Written by horror specialist Yockey of TV’s Supernatural and first produced in 2010, this play tells the emotional and disturbing story of a couple dealing with the disappearance of their young son from the ocean beach of their new home.  This play was proposed and selected by senior Theatre majors Joshua Kime and Elizabeth Ramos who will be performing the leading roles as part of their T490 Capstone course.
