Show Description

In Brian Copeland’s highly anticipated new play, he examines the issue of single parenting through a very personal story.

In 1979, Brian’s mother died suddenly, leaving behind 5 children for his 57 year-old grandmother to raise alone. 22 years later, Brian finds himself in the same predicament when the end of a marriage leaves him alone with his three kids. Through laughter and tears, he compares and contrasts trials of single parenting in the 1970s and the dawn of the 21st century as he tries to answer the question…What does it truly mean to be a father.
