It was only 37 minutes long. Although it had a few funny moments and even a little bit of insight, it was only average in terms of performances by the two actors and the staging. They flubbed lines and seemed a little lost at times. Not really...continued

I really like this little theatre, but this is the first play I've seen there that really knocked my socks off. The acting was superb! The set was wonderfully nostalgic and the script totally believable. You won't be disappointed.

It is a well written, very well acted, short, but intense play, which is very humorous and insightful to the dilemma of one person thinking of large possibilities for one's life against the more realistic feelings of another.

More Information


Nothing is impossible in the heart of an artist or for those who dare to dream…BIG. When a man’s passion pushes him to venture into unfamiliar commitments, anything can happen. When he falls for a beautiful girl who seems to miss some of the splendor of life’s bigger possibilities, there is always so much to be explored. The fun of this story is how it makes audiences feel!

Written by Randy Noojin.
