The script is a contemporary story that follows its lead character, twenty-five year old Mike Mercy, through ups and downs of love and life. He has the perfect girl, yet instead of being on top of the world he keeps getting stuck in the weeds, as he cannot break his routine of getting high. Encouraged by his mature neighbor to clean up his act or risk losing the love of his life, his light-hearted burnout friend is less of a positive influence, causing good and bad times for our hero. Being pursued by a lovely coworker with a boxer for a boyfriend, is not helping the situation. Rock music of the 70’s and 80’s influenced its 18 original songs, which follow the powerful emotions of the story.
Performance run time is approx. 1 1/2 hours.
