What We Need

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.

Alex introduces his kids to Walter and his wife, and to the nurse who cares for them. Together, they all embrace a new, unexpected chapter in their lives.
