It's 2am do you know who your children are? The sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking story of Paul and Donna who are waiting for their troubled fifteen-year-old son to return home late one night so that they can take him to a drug rehabilitation center…only to find themselves questioning their renovation choices, the political and religious persuasions of some of their neighbors, the feral cats running amuck in their backyard and, ultimately, their decisions to marry and have the child that is causing them so much trouble. Both insightful and cautionary, the play explores the realities of our consumer driven culture and the essence of happiness.
