Donny is in his mid-40’s and has piled all his belongings out onto his lawn topped by a sign that reads, “Here’s My Life - Make an Offer.” His daughter, his ex-wife and his good friend, Buck, are mystified by his actions, but he is determined to transcend the boundaries and un-grasped opportunities of his current life and seek a second chance. This serious comedy/drama, rich with existential overtones, will take audiences down their own roads not taken, exploring alternative universes and worlds where lifelines move backwards, and nudging them as only theater can, into introspective musings on action, family and life.
