Inspired by the "kids for cash" scandal in Pennsylvania's Luzerne County in the early 2000s, this compelling new work of musical theater gives voice to the families who fought back against a corrupt political machine that turned children into commodities. Commissioned and developed through the Lantern's New Works Program, this intimate American roots rock drama is the inaugural work of Kittson O'Neill and Tony Award-winning sound designer and composer Robert Kaplowitz.
