Playing Mac: A Novella in Two Acts, and Other Scenes
In the novella Playing Mac, Stan doesn’t know why he’s auditioning for a community theater production of 42nd Street. Maybe it’s because his wife wants a divorce, his oldest son feels awkward around him, and his youngest son isn’t even talking. Maybe Stan just wants a fresh start, a new beginning. Whatever his initial motivation to act, Stan finds himself transformed through his theater experience. In playing Mac, Stan discovers a second family. He finds friendship, fellowship, and romance with Ciara, a woman half his age. He’s given a second chance in love and family, but will that promising future with Ciara be obscured by the past? This book also features eight other “scenes,” character-driven short stories with a lot of heart. -- Provided by publisher
