Things aren't always what they seem.
An original comedy about the world of life insurance salesmen at the end of the roaring 20s and the dark secret they swore to protect.

An ambitious but naive young man joins the sales force of The Grand Old Life Insurance Company with the hope of one day becoming the General Agent of his own branch. After learning the ropes from the best salesman in the firm and life lessons from his new firebrand sweetheart, he quickly works his way to the top. However, the powerful board of directors has other plans for him and the company and he soon finds that the fate of the world depends on him deciding between the financial success he desires and holding on to those he loves.

Featuring a live jazz ensemble led by Andrea Leap and the acting talents of Jon Mac Cole, Andy Kraft, Ryan Nelson, Garrett Volmer, Kat Wodtke and Four Humors Theater company members Alisa Mattson, Rachel Petrie and Mark Rehani.

This activity is funded, in part, by the Minnesota State Arts Board through the arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
