The play


By Aaron Mark
Upper West Side empty nesters Ken and Cynthia hit a deer while driving to their weekend house in the Poconos. Cynthia tries desperately to nurse the dead animal back to life as Ken fights for his first weekend alone with his wife in twenty-five years. As their lifeless, bloody new pet takes over their lives, Ken and Cynthia will either rekindle their love or kill each other. Deer is a grisly play about normal people who snap.
