A series of theatrical vignettes shaped as a tour trying to convince people to come to (and stay in) Akron. The play is 75% based off of interviews with people from Akron's 24 neighborhoods and serves as a humorous (and sometimes serious), self-reflective look at where Akron came from, where it is now and where it plans to go all while giving a platform for the voices of its residents. Welcome to Akron, a place that many call home.
