Exit Wound

"Equity in grace demands unequal portions, and I had enough forgiveness to absolve the world. But I kept it all for myself - and squandered it."

James Lloyd is a Catholic seminary student in Washington, D.C. whose chances of confirmation are threatened when he is accused of committing a hate crime. When his former foster brother, Matthew, becomes involved with the case, old habits and revelations from the past begin to compromise James' chances of proving his innocence. Both James and Matthew are forced to reckon with their shared history and identities as they grapple with the play's central question: once a community is lost, can and should it ever be reclaimed?
