A Touching Comedy

After 20 years, Walter Price is unemployed.  A bench in a park somewhere in Los Angeles has become Walter Price’s haven. For six months he has stopped here to have a sandwich and coffee after fruitless mornings of job hunting. He’s depressed and frustrated and at a loss what to do with his life. Three uniquely different characters invade Walter’s life at the park, and though he tries to push them away, he is unable to ignore their presence or the perspectives on life they bring with them.

Directed by Shawn Dooley, “The Man with The Plastic Sandwich” features Patrick Deering (Batavia) as Walter, Jennifer Schreiner (Plainfield) as Ellie, Gary Riggle (Aurora) as Haley, and Briana Reidy (Aurora) as Lenore.  Vicki White is assistant to the director and Analissa Morris is stage manager.
