About this show

Lisa Dillman's American Wee-Pie explores the story of a disenfranchised textbook editor (Kurt Brocker) returning to his small midwestern hometown to bury his mother, having no reason to expect this visit might change his life. However, after a chance encounter with an old high school acquaintance (Jennifer Pompa), he finds himself pulled along on a journey of self-discovery-a personal renaissance that eventually transforms him from a lonely wrangler of commas and semicolons to an intuitive cupcake chef with a passion for making others happy one delicious confection at a time. American Wee-Pie is a big-hearted comedy about economic recession, career second acts, and the sometimes life-altering wonder of a small, good thing.
