A musical about the times we live in…
Book & Lyrics by Joel Adlen
Music & Additional Lyrics by Leonard Moors
A family desperately clings to the American Dream
as their world is crumbling around them.
Faced with foreclosure, Fran and Ray try to keep their lives together. But as Ray's employment prospects are nil, Fran's waitress job barely pays the mortgage, and their daughter Katie is buried in student debt, the three can barely makes ends meet. Fueled by talk-show rhetoric, Ray decides to liquidate his retirement. But instead of helping, he splurges all and heads toward a breakdown. As Fran desperately tries to keep things afloat, the three try to overcome these and other obstacles as they learn to take one step together in this century’s Great Recession.
