Down Range brings us into the world of career soldiers and their families, the tensions that shape their lives, and the effects of deployment in Iraq. Frank and Doc and their wives Beth and Eva are a close foursome. Once they were young and playful, picnicking near a lake but more recently life has come to weigh heavier. The play moves back and forth through time and we see it all as the men pursue their careers, early romance gives way to infidelity, and the women live as adjuncts, hangers on, one finding sufficient satisfaction in her family life, the other childless and bitter. That’s how it’s been until now. But the convoy the two buddies were traveling in while serving together in Iraq is hit by an IED and Doc, it seems, is killed. We witness the military protocol with which Doc’s body is escorted home, while Frank returns alive.
