In the Wings

What We Need, a new play by Ken Untiedt, focuses on Alex Jones, an ordinary guy who is divorced, struggling to maintain a relationship with his kids, foundering at work and failing in romance. He forms an unlikely friendship with Walter, a WWII veteran he meets at the grocery store. As he learns more about Walter and the challenges he overcame, Alex gains an appreciation for the opportunities before him. He  decides to be bold…and starts taking chances.

The cast includes Bill Small, Carla Redfield, Tina Oswald, Kearsten Clark Humber, Sally Ellsworth, Olivia Dean, Jody Ryan, Joshua Hall, Hollis Thompson and Ken Untiedt.

Opening night is Friday, November 1, 2019.
