Story of the play: Lenny is a great guy: a good teacher, an excellent father, and a loving husband. So when his wife leaves him for a smooth-talking lothario who builds Walmarts, his life is shattered. While he consoles himself with watching his favorite movie, 'To Kill a Mockingbird', his best friend Mick takes matters into his own hands. Now Lenny must decide what he will stand up for and who he will stand up to. How far is too far to get back to happily-ever-after?

Characters:

Lenny
a Jewish white guy with white man's guilt. Like to think of himself as a highly moral person, like Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. Mid 40s to early 60s.
Mick
Lenny's best friend since school days. An Irish guy and something of a racist. Mid 40s to early 60s.
Risa
Lenny's wife who left him for a real estate developer. Jewish and could be black. Mid 40s to early 60s.
Sarah
Lenny's daughter, and the narrator. She is a philosophy major in college. Early to late 20s. If Risa is black, then Sarah is as well.
