" ... a rollicking roller-coaster ride of witty lines, broad physical comedy and pure enjoyment."    - Kingston Whig-Standard

On the eve of his retirement, Professor Seymour Mann is asked to deliver a prestigious lecture on his life’s work -- and he's coming up empty.  Doing battle with his sense of inadequacy, his laptop, and his laundry, he’s in no mood for a phone call from a telemarketer at the Stephen Lewis Foundation, who won't take no for an answer.  A rapid-fire funny comedy about charity and the meaning of "a life well-lived" that asks the question, “What if answering that telemarketing call could lead to unexpected fulfillment?”  

Running Time:  2 hours, ten minutes, with one intermission

Audience Advisory:  Brief male nudity, fog
