Suzanne Alexander, a successful author, has been invited back to her alma mater, Ohio State, to give a lecture on the themes in her work. As Suzanne revisits her time as a student, a sinister mystery surfaces and begins to unravel, revealing how we are all unwilling products of our environment and that survival is sometimes the biggest act of defiance.


Adrienne Kennedy, the Obie award-winning playwright of Ohio State Murders, has had a profound and long-lasting affect on the American theatre. Her first produced play, Funnyhouse of a Negro, premiered Off-Broadway in 1964. She is a 1953 graduate of Ohio State University.
