From playwright Steven Levenson (Roundabout's acclaimed The Language of Trees) comes this funny, raw and moving world premiere about the price we pay for defaulting on those we love. Tom Durnin did the time for his white-collar crime. Now, he's determined to win back the respect he believes he deserves-even if that means ripping apart the new life his family has so carefully put together in his absence. Tom's son warily allows his father to camp out on his couch, hoping the man who let everyone down has finally turned a new page. After a lifetime of empty promises, can Tom find a place in a family that has worked so hard to move on without him?
