Hello Brother is a story about three characters in small town Ohio, all trapped in their own desperate situations, who come to rely on one another to rise above their divisions and band together. The play takes place at a diner named after a Louis Armstrong song, hearkening back to an America that was just as divided along those same lines so many generations ago. There is no happy ending, but there is hope.
