Maple and Vine
A provocative '50s fantasy by Jordan Harrison. Burned out by their hectic, Manhattan lifestyles, Katha and Ryu move to Maple and Vine, a corner of the world where the milkman still makes daily deliveries and the housewives' smiles are as sweet as their homemade apple pies. This is 1955—perpetually. Reenacting the era with startling authenticity, the community gives up their smart phones for switchboards. But when their civil liberties are in question, what will they sacrifice for happiness?
