Get your hands dirty. Mara has just taken over her very-recently-deceased dad's position at a vintage car restoration shop in Berkeley, CA, run by his best friend of 30 years. She meets, and is pursued by, Patrick, a younger man who is a professor of anthropology at the local university. Hesitantly, she allows herself to fall in love with him. But life gets complicated when Mara runs into the love her life Daniel while visiting Boston. A play inspired by the modern day love poetry of Alice Walker, Noel Coward and James Tipton.
