Moments and Lemons, a play about the mishaps of an unfortunate man named Casper, is an "essential theater" production for two character actors, one of whom plays Casper at all the stages of his life. The other plays his jail cellmate and all the women in his life.
Casper's narrative spans eight decades. In his teenage years, as a straight-A student, he yearns to become a successful lawyer. Running afoul of the law, his life path leads to prison. Rejoining life as an ex-con, he must re-enter a society that he is not quite accustomed to. His path is tangled with misguided detours and poor calls of judgment. The play is a drama of error and recovery.
