Short Synopsis

Is the odyssey of Charley Contrare, who leaves home while still a boy and spends a lifetime seeking to "find" himself, to know who and what he really is. While his mother waits at home, and then eagerly packs her bags hoping to join Charley in Hawaii, we meet Charley at ages sixteen, thirty, sixty and ninety. In this free-flowing fantasy world, filled with theatrically vivid episodes from Charley's various "pasts," each Charley challenges the reality of his alter egos—until, at last, the true Charley arrives, releasing his mother from her long vigil and setting right the kaleidoscope of "amazing activities" that have comprised his multifaceted life.

This ingenious and imaginative comedy-fantasy marked the debut of an exciting and original playwright.
