Frank and Barb are baseball broadcast announcers. Frank is exuberant in describing the action on the field. Barb, his sidekick, wishes that she could become the “bigger than life” announcer that he has become. When faced with an excruciating boring baseball game, they use the time between innings when they are OFF-Air to describe the action in the stands in baseball lingo. Through an unexpected turn of event, Barb finds her own voice as an exuberant baseball announcer.
A playwright writes a play about a son and the relationship with his son that he wished he had. The play goes awry giving the actor playing the son the opportunity to reveal who he really is. This play, outside a play, delves into the regrets of our past, forgiveness, and the desire for restored, healthy relationships. Life isn't always as we make it out to be.

A look into the past by members of the "baby boomer" generation who are still searching for answers; but this time, to figure out what happened to the 1960's - the hippie movement, it's love-ins and the flowers in our hair; and how do we, the U.S., get back to the garden. The play begins with the group gathering to sit on pillows on the floor, as they did decades ago, as each one looks for a chair to grab from the next room - afraid if they sit on the floor they won't be able to get back up.
