Each one-act play may be performed as individual skits (ideal for theatre classrooms), however the full collection can be performed as an 80-90 minute production. They deal with the features a father normally provides – security, protection, identity, affirmation, and love.

The series begins with the playwright’s autobiographical prologue and extends into four dramas and two comedies; “Candy and Toys”, “The Legend of an Invisible Father”, “Wrong Place, Wrong Time”, “Unlocked Doors,” “Papito”, and “Far from the Tree”. Each script is a fictional portrayal of the real-life issues extracted from the personal interviews of individuals from all walks of life struggling with fatherlessness.
