Hank Brown is an adventure-seeking American with a dream to work in a foreign country. Unhappy teaching chemistry at a high school in Pasadena, Texas, Hank parlays his knowledge of chemical elements with a stint in oil and gas to land a position at a Saudi Arabian oil company. Selling his wife Tina (a fervent Christian) on romantic ideas about the Middle East, they relocate to Dhahran in search of their version of the American Dream. But it’s 1981, and after 10 years of living in Saudi Arabia and experiencing two wars, their relationship fractures. With the help of music and humor, the play examines the expatriate lifestyle and becomes an investigation into the psychological, spiritual, and physiological effects of being stationed too long in a foreign land.
