Leopold De Angeli is a talented playwright, but like many scribes he fancies the drink a little too much. In the hopes of saving Leopold's life, his theater friends come together to stage an intervention for him.
The show follows a young single mother raising two high school-age boys in Los Angeles while juggling multiple minimum-wage jobs. Masterson's character is stiffed on a paycheck and subsequently referred to a local nonprofit advocacy center for help in making her employer pay up. Intrigued by the agency's cases, she winds up with a job as a case worker for them. Written by
Mary Stuart Masterson is an excellent actress. Her two sons are wonderful (Gregory Smith is an up-and-comer who you will see in more major movies in a few years). Sandwiching this show between "That's Life" and "The District" was a good move. This show features many new issues facing a mother/son/son family. The only problem? 'Elvis' and 'Daniel' Brasher have the same hairstyles as kids at my school, which means they brush their hair forward and gel it. Yuck!!
