"Caught in a cycle of lost jobs, late babysitters and last month's rent, things aren’t great for Margie, a single mom in South Boston," according to press notes. "Desperate for a job, she tracks down her high school sweetheart Mikey, a successful doctor whose life took a luckier path. Will stories and surprises about the old neighborhood give her and her daughter the break they need?"

Creating the world of the play are scenic designer James Youmans, costume designer David Murin, sound designer/composer Scott Killian and lighting designer Charlie Morrison.
