Written & Directed by Michael Tarringer



SALT's first annual local playwright production, performed at SALT's West Chester black box theatre location (19 Hagerty Blvd, Unit 14, West Chester, PA 19382).



Between work, going to school at night, and refereeing her parents’ arguments, Maggie Green does not have much time for fun. Maggie’s father, Max, has been oblivious to his wife’s attempts to have the couple become close again, and, instead, complains to old friends about how difficult married life can be. While Max would prefer to spend time watching baseball games, the advice he gets from his daughter and friends inspires Max to try to reconnect with his wife, but fate interferes with everyone’s plans for a little romance.
