The Old Globe presents "What You Are," a world premiere by JC Lee and directed by Patricia McGregor.

Feeling adrift in a changing America he no longer recognizes, Don scrapes together a living and struggles to support his family through hard work and good intentions. But everything around him, from his younger co-workers, to the technology in his office job, to even his own opinionated daughter, seems alien to the certainties and stabilities he once knew.

When a simple misunderstanding at work escalates into an all-out confrontation, Don hatches a plan to set right all the things he feels have gone wrong. Can the people who love him manage to hold him together?

This Globe-commissioned story is a riveting, of-the-moment exploration of the personal struggles that accompany sweeping social change.
