In The Size of the World, an elderly couple listen to Peter's big ideas. Peter Hogancamp thinks big. He's a charming young man who longs for big-time success. He shares his hopes and dreams, his stardust ideas, and his unbridled enthusiasm with an elderly couple in whose home he rents a room near the big city. Peter has a small dash of Walter Mitty and a large dose of Willy Loman, with big, complicated plans. But, he also has serious issues coming to terms with something simple...reality.

Cast: Matt Edmonds (Peter Hogancamp), Sandy Elias (Stan Merkle), Mary Poole (Vivian Merkle)
