Alex Lippard directs the production, which also stars Adam Green. The play is presented by Les Gutman and Elizabeth Cockrell in association with Friendly Fire. According to press notes, "Travanti stars as Henry Grunwald, a Viennese Jew who fled the Nazis and became a successful advertising executive in New York. Now retired and determined to fulfill his dream of becoming a playwright, Henry engages the assistance of a young, opinionated NYU student who shares his passion for writing and headstrong spirit in this new play about friendship, loyalty, dreams and, ultimately, coming to terms with the past–and present."
