It has afforded opportunities such as being asked to be on the National Advisory Board for the Buechner Institute at King College in Tennessee as well as meeting “Fred” himself in January of 2010. Nathan has nothing but gratitude to Buechner for giving the words that inspire this show; to his wife, Tracey, who is his destiny, his joy and his heart’s desire; and to the wildest miracles of them all, his daughters, Lucy and Penny, who astonish him daily with their brazen wonder and helpless hope. And to you, who have helped grow this tiny show in a tiny theater space 9 years ago to something lasting and mystical. By God, it’s good, brothers. The mud. The crust. Everything.
