Wm. Stage gets paid to be a nuisance, and he is good at it. A process server bearing bad news to strangers-no wonder people shun him. But on the side, he has his own secret mission: To find his unknown biological family and have cocktails with them. His neurotic mother aids in the search, hoping to bolster her theory that the child she and her husband adopted 50 years ago is indeed a sociopath. Meanwhile Wm. desperately seeks a woman with a "friendly womb." Why is he trying to reproduce like some rutting animal? It takes a series of painful and awakening life lessons for him to find out.
" ... a poignant and illuminating work that walks a fine balance between side-splitting hmour and philosophical seriousness."
-- John Gillis, The Inverness [Nova Scotia] Oran
"Stage weaves a journey filled with hilarious situations, tightly written with sharp one-liners."
-- Jim Orso, the St. Louis Beacon
