Amber Waves

The play takes place in a small farming community in Kansas and revolves around a family crisis. After a hard year, Mike Olson finds he is very close to losing his farm. The bank doesn't want to lend him the money he needs to plant his next crop. However, what Mike doesn't realize is that he is very close to losing his family. Mike and his wife, Penny, struggle to keep everything going without telling their two children, Scott and Deb. Scott, a high school student, finds it hard to cope with his athletic activities and the family problems, so he quits the team and gets a job. Deb, a junior high student, gains understanding about her family's problems through the kind words of an elderly neighbor, One-Eye Johnny.
