Archer (still Angela to his family) returns home to the forests of eastern Oregon to care for his sick father. At night under the oldest Ponderosa Pine, he meets a stranger who knows the history of the forests. Sagittarius Ponderosa reveals the enduring ties between the roots beneath our feet and the mysteries of the human heart…and the journey of personal identity we all must take to become ourselves.

This production is partially supported by a grant from the Michael and Mona Heath Fund
