Scissortail is a play about loss, grief, and recovery based on the events of the Oklahoma City Bombing. The play centers around Gavin, a young, recently relocated Oklahoman as he grapples with the devastating effects that the attack has had on him, 20 years later. Told through present day conversation, 90's flashbacks, historical interviews with Timothy McVeigh, and the dark spaces between the dream and reality, Scissortail explores both the 1995 bombing and the theme of grief in a deeply personal way. 

Scissortail was first produced in Chicago in 2015 and was nominated for the Joseph Jefferson Award (Jeff Award) for Best New Work. 

Scissortail is rated R for explicit language, violent situations and themes that may be traumatic for some viewers.
