BLIGHT

by John Bavoso

Silvia and Cat Henson have just moved from a tiny apartment in Washington, DC, into their sprawling dream home in the small, affluent town of Greenville, Delaware. Their new house, however, was recently the home of a teenaged mass shooter and his single mother. Is this the right time and place for Silvia and Cat to bring a new baby into the world, or will the house create an irreparable rift between them and their new community?

Highly Intriguing

BLIGHT has a highly intriguing premise that is relevant and yet offers no easy answers. The title makes us consider what we might view as acceptable to see and be reminded of in our communities and even within our own homes. The question of who controls our property, which might include our own bodies, is powerful and dramatic. Bavoso skillfully travels back and forth in time to tell two stories of loss and what is at stake for the individuals involved, as well as for the broader society that is affected by a single tragic event.
