WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

By Bruce J. Robinson Directed by John Amplas MIA takes place in present-day rural Ohio. It's the weekend in which well-respected insurance salesman and pillar of the community Frank Schooler is to be named the VFW's Committee on MIAs "Man of the Year." Schooler's oldest son, Michael, was MIA in Operation Desert Shield (1991). Coincidently, Mike would have celebrated his 40th birthday on this weekend. To Frank's profound ambivalence, his younger son is considering enlisting. Frank is torn between supporting his son's desire to serve and his paternal dread at losing another child, haunted by the son he lost and the one he might lose. This world premiere by prize-winning playwright Bruce J. Robinson is a spectacularly theatrical blend of drama and comedy about real people pursuing human needs - and about that fine balance between those needs and what we owe. Mia asks questions we're often forced to ask - and offers compelling, thoughtful, engaging answers.
