A clever little play by the same playwright that wrote MEMPHIS and I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE. The play opens with a scene in a locker room where father and son have just finished a tennis match. Overcome with emotion, son Billy reveals to his father that he is having an affair and then makes him swear to keep it a secret, especially from mom. In no time at all Alice’s intuition kicks in and she senses that something is wrong. She invites her son and daughter-in-law over for drinks and dessert as a pretext to getting to the bottom of things. What ensues can only be described as chaos as confessions and revelations from all sides tests the strength of marriage vows and the meaning of fidelity.
The New York Times described it as “…good old fashioned comfort food for theatregoers….. that offers a blend of comedy and sentiment, with maybe just a hint of sting.”

Playing all the other characters in Christopher’s life, this ensemble is wide and diverse with actors each playing multiple characters ranging from young punk girls and grandmothers to policemen.
Fifteen-year-old Christopher is exceptional in math, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he finds himself under suspicion for the death of his neighbor’s dog, he is determined to solve the mystery, even if it means leaving the street by himself. He begins a thrilling journey that upturns his world in this play where the audience learns to see through Christopher’s eyes.
