Kurt and Win have spent their young lives protecting their alcoholic mother. When an accident leads to a devastating fire, they are catapulted into a media frenzy and Win becomes a reluctant hero. But the brothers harbor a terrible secret. Will Win choose family loyalty or listen to his conscience?

_ Everyday Heroes_ raises questions about the meaning of heroism and explores issues surrounding the power of the media and the silencing of boys’ emotions in our society.

This production marks the West Coast premiere and is part of Laguna Playhouse’s Theatre for a New Generation series of plays especially for teens, parents and educators.
