Characters on the edge of sanity and running from their past—to North Dakota, Italy, and Mars. A young American woman attempts to regain her footing and becomes entranced by the mystical saints in Jessie Chaffee’s Florence in Ecstasy; in Gabe Habash’s Stephen Florida, a college wrestler is focused on the state championship at any cost; and the astronauts, and those they leave behind in pursuit of the frontier, confront the extremes of outer space and the complications of their own human hearts in Meg Howrey’s The Wanderers. With moderator Leni Zumas (The Listeners, forthcoming Red Clocks).
