Approximate Playing Time: 45 Minutes

Ben, an aging screenwriter, is at a loss since the death of his wife. Unable to write and despondent over all of the unrest he sees in the world, Ben escapes to a remote region of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where he takes up residence in an old Airstream trailer. Augustus, a young local, finds Ben passed out in the yard of the trailer and stops to check on him. The two strike up a strange friendship and through his relationship with Gus, Ben discovers that all is not lost, that there are still good people in the world. A beautifully written, witty, engaging and touching work, this winner of the Village Playhouse of Wauwatosa One-Act Play Writing Festival premiered in 2015 at Inspiration Studios in West Allis, Wisconsin. $10 Single-Use Copyright Fee plus $40 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
