Why does opportunity knock for some, while others can't catch a break? And where's the line between kindness and selfishness? Those questions loom large in this thought-provoking play about two teenage sweethearts who reconnect after 30 years. Mike is a doctor with a lovely home in an upscale neighborhood, and Margaret is an out of work single mom whose teen pregnancy led to dropping out of high school, and scraping by ever since. Their common humble roots and now radically different lives spark a fascinating, funny, and honest exploration of the ways in which class, race, luck, goodness, and the choices that we make can shape our lives.
