What do you do when love doesn't work?
When newlyweds Greg and Judy decide to take in a foster child, they get much more than they bargained for when Harley, a 14-year-old veteran of the foster care system, joins their family. The only way Greg can figure out to reach Harley is to call on the unloved boy in his own past.
"The one play of extraordinary merit, managing to mix fun with poignancy, tragedy with survival, was Ward's Welding. In the dozens of playwriting conferences I've attended, I've never encountered remotely as strong a script. . . . Hanley manages to leave you feeling hope in the midst of loss. I agreed with Timothy Mason's assessment that, "It's the finest use of a Narrator I've seen since Thornton Wilder." - Peter Filichia, Theater Week Magazine.
