Rules of Seconds
About Rules of Seconds
Set in 1855 Boston, where the slightest infraction between gentlemen is grounds for a challenge to be resolved with pistols, RULES OF SECONDS marks the inaugural production of The Temblors, the Latino Theater Company's new collective of LA-based playwrights. When Nathaniel "Wings" Leeds is challenged to a duel by the most dangerous man in the city, he asks his estranged brother to be his second. Deep family tensions and old rivalries resurface as the brothers struggle to follow the hundreds-years-old "Code of Dueling."
