What You Are
Feeling adrift in a changing America he no longer recognizes, Don scrapes together a living and struggles to support his family through hard work and good intentions. But everything around him, from his younger co-workers, to the technology in his office job, to his own opinionated daughter, seems alien to the certainties and stabilities he once knew. When a simple misunderstanding at work escalates into an all-out confrontation, Don hatches a plan to set right all the things he feels have gone wrong.
When: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 8 pm, Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays 7 pm. Through June 30.
Where: Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park. theoldglobe.org
