They dream of changing the world. Until they wake up.
Victor, an aging widower, lives in a subdivided house with his grown-up children and foster son, two lodgers, a live-in housekeeper, and their many guests. To Victor’s dismay, his sprawling home has become a hub for a new generation he doesn’t understand. Under the one roof they live, fight, dance, pray, drink, love, and try to find a way out, in this darkly comic play about the ends of youth, the beginnings of disillusion, and a new generation struggling to fly.
