Our A 3 talented Teens are at it again.  

The Land Southward, written by Darcy Hogan, is a full length, non-linear play that dives into the above ground nuclear testing conducted by the United States' government in the 1950s as well as the people who suffered for decades afterwards due to the effects of the fallout.

A young writer named Liz travels to Southern Utah to try and understand the "downwinders," those who lived downwind of the fallout, and what happened to them.

As Liz hears the stories of a woman named May who lived through these events and lost everyone she loves, she learns that the government intentionally conducted nuclear tests on the days when the wind blew towards Southern Utah, towards those with the religious beliefs that would keep them compliant and quiet.
