That performance tells the story of Little Chap, a working class stiff, who marries the boss' daughter Evie because she is pregnant. He wouldn't have married her otherwise. As Evie is the boss' daughter, Little Chap, over the course of thirty-five years, is given opportunity after opportunity to enhance his professional life by his new father-in-law. In turn, Little Chap, being opportunistic, builds upon those experiences to try and be fulfilled both professionally and personally, rarely taking Evie and his burgeoning family into consideration despite the fact that they love him. At the end of those thirty-five years, he comes to an understanding of who he is and why he made the decisions in his life that he did. Written by Huggo See less
