About the show

On a day like no other, an Average Joe is given the unique opportunity to revisit his past to answer the question, “Were the good old days really the way we remember them?” and to uncover how people changed his life—for better or worse. Four actors portray 16 different characters as Joe discovers People Along the Way, a new play by Terry Shears.
