Love in Pine
Love was in the air on prom night in the town of Pine, TX, but Boy and Girl didn’t make it to the dance – a fatal head-on collision with a pine tree trapped their souls inside the tree itself. Two years later, the lonely town Teacher and Girl’s guilt-racked Sister try to find them a different ending to prom night, but how exactly does one change the past? And how can they stop the wildfire scorching its way through the county? And why does the Tree herself want to keep them there? A heartbreaking, supernatural twist on the traditional American prom night story, Love in Pine is a bold, poetic, relevant new play by local writer/director Gary Jaffe set in the pine woods of central Texas, where trees talk, prom lasts forever, and love, for better or worse, is love.
