As his wife does gymnastics and magic tricks, his crazy mother invents her own vocabulary, and his aunt writes her own version of the Bible, Five Oaks Assistant City Manager Wyatt Palmer tries to live a normal life and nearly succeeds. But when he lures a toxic-waste-producing chemical plant to his economically depressed town, he discovers he has truly made a deal with the Devil. Set in a small Michigan town, Shadow Play explores ethics, character, and the deeply complex questions we all must face, even when we are trying to live the simplest of lives.
