An original work by Nick Gutierrez '20. It's Friday, and Alex has a weekend of interviews scheduled at a strip-mall Starbucks as he frantically scrambles to find a summer internship. A hilarious and moving look at the pitfalls of choosing a path forward in life, how we decide what matters, and the impact that we have on one another.

*The February 29 performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the playwright, director, and cast.
