This Lingering Life takes place in someplace like the U.S., where we meet a woman with tragic hair, feudal warriors, a mother whose son was kidnapped, a blind beggar, dead lovers, a pathetic old man in love with a teenager, a boy whose father is an arrow, and other sentient beings. It all happens in the present time, except when it happens in an ancient era.

David Wiener

On November 3 a woman is murdered following a contentious "town hall" rally in Pennsylvania. Her killer claims to have been motivated by the on-air rhetoric of prominent conservative talk show host, Dennis Kahane. The events of November 3 are not in dispute. But now, on the eve of his trial, Dennis Kahane wants you to know that none of the occurrences are what they seem. A play about the price of free speech, Goliath explores the relationship between political violence and loneliness in America.
