The residents of the small town of Bethel are facing a crisis: their beloved park has been sold out from under them and it's sending their lives into a tailspin. The sudden shift has also made them realize they're more connected to each other and the nature around them than ever before. Now they must act on it. Through seven interconnected vignettes, the sixteen citizens lose their jobs, homes, and spouses but find love, faith, courage, and forgiveness. Spanning the four seasons of the year, the park magically transforms over a single day.
Written with funny man and one of the popular playwrights in high schools... Sir Ian McWethy! So, you might have guessed it... it's a comedy. Ian wrote all the funny parts and I wrote some of the stage directions. Okay, we wrote it together. But I sat on his shoulders.

The one where a simple one act production of The Wizard of Oz gets derailed by missed cues, forgotten lines, a renegade sound board op who refuses to play anything but dinosaur noises. A comedy that proves, when it comes to live theatre, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong, and it will be hilarious.
