This play takes place in 1962 when the agents of Eisenhower-era conformity first began to clash with the free-thinkers who would one day change the world. Murray Burns and his 12 year old nephew Nick are an unconventional family in this deeply conventional time. When Nick writes a school essay on the advantages of Unemployment Insurance, their home life is investigated by a psychologist and a social worker from the Child Welfare Board and Murray is forced to choose between rebellion and responsibility.
