The Rivers and Ravines by Heather McDonaldp> Drama Characters: 9 male, 5 female (doubling possible). Unit set. Originally produced to acclaim by Washington D.C.'s famed Arena Stage, this is an engrossing political drama about the contemporary farm crisis in America and its effect on rural communities. A haunting and emotionally draining play. A community of farmers and ranchers in a small Colorado town disintegrates under the weight of failure and thwarted ambitions. Most of the farmers, their spouses, children, clergyman, banker and greasy spoon proprietress survive, but it is survival without triumph. This is an Our Town for the 80's. -The Washington Post
