In the present, three generations of fathers and sons struggle to communicate as their family line grows and ages across a vast ocean of time. How do individuals continue to exist through the passing of the years? Do I eat pickles on my sandwich because my great-great grandpa did? Charles, Charles, Charles, Charles, Charles Charles Charles.

"Holder’s dialogue is vague enough that each scene leaves the audience with emotional resonance, but not much literal context. The abstractness works well, at first. What doesn’t work well is that the script doesn’t do anything with it...Even the question of machismo – which is only portrayed in the most generic of displays – is left unanswered as the play spirals off in a different direction...The actors did a good job with what they were given."
