SIDES:

LIA AND TERRY WALK THROUGH A FIELD...

LIA HADDOCK: (V.O.) When we arrived to the site of the execution, all that remained was the stake buried in the ground, a dark memorial to the madness of that night. Seemingly out of reverence, no plants surround the base. The only reminder of tragedy can be found in the darkened wood of the stake from the flames. Terry remained silent as we got closer, his demeanor changing from tour guide to reverent observer.

LIA HADDOCK: What do you feel standing here?

TERRY HILKINS: I feel... Exactly how I feel about all of this.

LIA HADDOCK: Which is how?

TERRY HILKINS: (PAUSE) Like I've stared at something too long. And I don't know a thing. Not one damn thing.

SCENE 2.
LIA HADDOCK: (V.O.) My name is Lia Haddock, and I am an investigative reporter with American Public Radio. I was 17 years old as the events of Limetown unfolded, but I don't feel uncomfortable saying that I probably approached it differently than most 17 year olds did at the time. I became somewhat of a Limetown news junkie---and, all things considered, it's fair to say it played a large part in why I am an investigative reporter at all. The infamous photo of the devastated father collapsed to his knees outside the gates of Limetown, his hands clutching his head as if to pull his hair out while attempting to maintain dignity by covering his face from the world, hangs on the wall above my desk where I am writing these very words. So to say that it is an honor to get the chance to devote myself to this story for a national audience, would be quite the understatement. So, over the last several months, I have been combing through all of the archives available, speaking to every person that was willing to speak, driving hundreds of miles in rental cars, and almost finding as much frustration as anyone else who had decided to investigate the story of Limetown for its 10 year anniversary. Regardless, it is a story worthy of telling and hearing again--which you have recently no doubt been reminded from practically every other media platform. However, the focus of this 10 part series on Limetown will not solely be on the catastrophe itself, but the people it effected most, and what it means to them today; if for nothing else, than to attempt to give the missing a voice through the ones who loved them most. These were--or, as Terry Hilkins reminds us, are--people, with dreams, hopes, and a shared vision of what could be. But first, we must set the stage and re-live the events of Limetown one last time. Please stay tuned.
