Regional Premiere

A surprisingly funny story of seething tensions and missed connections, from the author of The Whale.

It is 1999 and Y2K panic grips a remote Idaho town. An editor named QZ and her awkward, earnest assistant Matthew are pushing to get their small newspaper out on deadline when QZ's old flame, Bryan, walks in. Four years previously, Bryan had abandoned QZ and the paper they'd started together, a source of comfort and connection for truckers on the road. Bryan's unexpected return explodes long-simmering tensions and exposes everyone's carefully guarded secrets. Purposefully set during a time when computers were large machines on desktops rather than phones that fit in our pockets, The Few meditates on the timeless, profound need for human connection when facing an uncertain future.
