    Winner of the 2012 Francesca Primus Prize 

    In the early 90’s in Sudan after civil war destroyed their villages, an exodus of boys trekked eight hundred miles across Africa until making it to refugee camps in Kenya where they lived on a bowl of grain a day for ten years.  In 2001, the U.S. resettled 3,600 of these “Lost Boys” in cities across America.

     LOST BOY FOUND IN WHOLE FOODS tells the story of Christine, a recently divorced “East Ender” from Pittsburgh who meets Gabriel, a former “Lost Boy” working in the produce section of Whole Foods.  Soon Gabriel’s world becomes enmeshed with hers and daughter Alex -- leading to a remarkable journey of awareness, struggle and hopefulness.  The play asks the question: what happens when we open up our lives to help another human being -- leaving us to wonder about the effect of one soul upon another.

    "Ryan's play poignantly and powerfully integrates a personal story with a current world issue.  When single mother Christine meets Gabriel, one of the "lost boys" from Sudan, in the produce section of a Pittsburgh Whole Foods where he works, the two form a relationship that changes both their lives.  The play avoids easy, feel-good answers in exploring the very different ways that Christine and Gabriel think he should deal with the challenges he faces.  As Pittsburgh theater critic Christopher Rawson perceptively observes, "the person who is most truly lost amid middle-class comfort is..Christine...[the play charts] the faltering, one-forward, one-back steps she takes to find her own usefulness and meaning."   - The American Theater Critics Association upon awarding the play the Francesca Primus Prize 2012.

    A Confluence of Dreaming tells the story of Carol, an under appreciated and seemingly invisible suburban homemaker who finds herself wondering what the hell happened to her life.  She rediscovers stifled thrill and passion in the secret, sexy world of cyberspace.  As her husband obsesses over their local property tax assessment and the cost of their current kitchen renovation, the state of their marriage (along with their roof) is about to collapse under the weight of what they haven’t addressed.  Their seventeen year old “activist” daughter, who is about to leave the nest and save the world, is torn between going to college or Tibet.  Taking place in Pittsburgh during the summer of 2001, Carol solicits a face to face meeting with her online lover in New York City.  When fantasy collides with reality in his studio apartment, Carol confronts the choices she’s made against the desires she has suppressed in the quest for self-fulfillment.

    The land and those who live in intimate terms with it are the focus of Koller's plays. In The Seed Savers, Joe faces pressure to purchase genetically modified seed; Jeanie refuses to sell untilled land for development in Cowboy Boots and a Corsage; Abby sees a lake as her final resting place in Abby's Place; and in The Early Worm Club, Millie realizes a deep sense of belonging to the Alberta parkland and its birds while searching for her mate. Nature goes beyond mere setting and backdrop in these plays to effect transformation and resolution on the characters. Ranging from romantic comedy to drama and from one-act to full-length, the plays in Voices of the Land show western Canadians at the point of leaving, returning, and renewing against the backdrop of their native landscape.
