Second Thought Theatre presents the world premiere of "The Necessities" by local playwright/actor/director and SMU professor Blake Hackler.
Peter's a former minister yearning to escape his past. Debbie's a disgruntled Walmart employee hoping to do the same. Carly's an eccentric Reiki therapist looking for love, and her estranged son Ward has a penchant for "Battlestar Galactica." Set against the backdrop of a small east Texas town, the lives of these strangers intersect as they desperately search for intimacy and connection. But the center can’t hold, at least not in a town like this, and each of them will have to decide how much they are willing to give to get what they need.
