From the event description:

This new play by Steve Yockey, a writer on TV's "Supernatural" is a mash-up of myth, missing empathy and "good neighbors" that explores what happens when the mercury rises. In short, it's a comedy about revenge. Three stories cross outside of Portland, Oregon, and, in each one, no one's happy, people stop being nice and blood spills. 

When: Thursday, May 2, 8 p.m.
Where: Know Theatre of Cincinnati, 1120 Jackson St.
