A new father records a birthday message for his one-year-old son as he wrestles with the legacy, doubts, and hopes he has for the world that his son will inherit.

In Weitzman’s play, written expressly for Zoom, the intimacy, the home-made immediacy of the medium adds to the power of witnessing this particular new father reaching out to his present and future son. (Right: Sean Astin)
