The Few, by Samuel D. Hunter
The Few is HELEN HAYES AWARDS RECOMMENDED ©
It's 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers that he founded with his friends. Now he's returned to small-town Idaho with no word of where he's been, and everything has changed. One friend is gone, the other his former lover has traded idealism for realism, and their new-ish co-worker is emotionally invested in a paper now filled with personal ads instead of perspectives. Hunters play is a "compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives" (The New York Times) desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.
