Presented  at The Den Theatre 

The town’s major employers are a cattle slaughterhouse and a penitentiary where lethal injection is administered. Whether they work at the slaughterhouse, play preacher or guard to death row inmates, or merely offer a bed and a hot meal to those visiting the prison, each resident of Chagrin Falls makes their living off of death and captivity.

Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Association Osborn Award Chagrin Falls has also received a Joseph Jefferson Award and After Dark Award for Best New Work (2002), as well as a Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Production and first prize in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition.
